Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Wigston?

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Wigston, and all documents would be hand-produced and posted or delivered by hand.

That service came at a price, but the truth is that it is no longer needed. With modern technology such as scanning, emailing and even Skype or Facetime video calls there is no need to use your local solicitor. Your conveyancer can be based anywhere and still provide a great service - even if he or she is in an office many miles away from Wigston or perhaps not even in Leicestershire .

We have successfully dealt with thousands of conveyancing transactions all over the country, even with clients from the other side of the world. It is not unknown for us to talk to clients outside the UK using Skype, and once we had clients in Thailand talking to us through an interpreter in New Zealand!

There will be no need for you to visit our offices or hand deliver documents. You need never leave Wigston - our conveyancers will talk you through the process via phone and email, and everything works just as smoothly as it would if we were just down the road.

Fees for conveyancing in Wigston

Our fees are transparent and, so long as the situation does not change (for example so long as your property doesn't turn out to be leasehold when we thought it was freehold) the fee we quote is the fee you will be charged.

We don't add extras on for things like photocopying, postage, or the like. Those are our overheads and we don't pass them on to you.

All our conveyancing fees are dependent on the nature and value of the transaction, so we naturally charge a bit more for more complicated and high value work. However, the fee charged will be the same for a customer in Newcastle as it would be for someone in London, or indeed in Wigston.

There are some aspects of our conveyancing fees which we can't change. Fees charged by other bodies such as HM Land Registry, or by HMRC for Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) are out of our control.

The Oadby and Wigston Borough Council have offices in Bushloe House, which was originally a country house, built around 1850 and extended in 1880.
There is also a Framework Knitting museum, due the occupation having significant importance in the area from the 17th to 19th centuries.

Wigston's economy largely revolves around retail. McDonald's, Tesco, Farmfoods, Ladbrokes, Superdrug, and many other firms have centres in the town or in its close proximity.

The town also has a Sainsbury's store, which was opened in 1980, and in 2002, a Tesco's was opened, on Blaby Road. The Wigston department store is also soon to be converted into a Co-op food store.

There are also a number of schools in the area, such as the Bushloe High School, Abington Academy, Guthlaxton College and The Meadow Community Primary School (OFSTED rated 'outstanding')

In terms of transport, there is a South Wigston railway station, lying on the Birmingham to Peterborough Line. Trains to Leicester run on the hour, taking 5 minutes. This allows for Wigston to be a popular commuting town.
