East Midlands Conveyancing

Find out more about conveyancing in East Midlands

East Midlands Conveyancers

The East Midlands is one of the nine regions within England, consisting of Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland. There are few notable towns and cities within the East Midlands such as Boston, Buxton, Chesterfield, Corby, Grantham, Loughborough, Mansfield and Market Harborough. The region is mostly served by East Midlands Airport, which lies between Derby, Leicester and Nottingham.

Some well-known landmarks within the East Midlands include the Heights of Abraham, Lincoln Castle, Wollaton Hall which you may recognise from the Batman movies, Lincoln Cathedral and an abundance of National Trust locations.

If you love your food, some of Britain’s great staples originate from the East Midlands, including Red Leicester cheese, Melton Mowbray pork pies, Bakewell tarts, bramley apples, Lincolnshire sausages and Stilton cheese.

East Midlands conveyancing costs

Conveyancing cost for seller

The cost for a conveyancer in the East Midlands can vary, and usually depends on the cost of your property. The location of your property doesn’t usually affect price, unless you require additional searches in regions where issues may be present, for example Cornish Tin Mines. Once instructed, your conveyancer will take on the work to ensure you have an accurate legal representation.
Selling costs are usually cheaper than the costs of buying a house, as there is usually less legal work to complete with a sale. You don’t have to worry about getting surveys or searches as these are all the buyers’ responsibility, therefore your main cost will be within the legal fees.

Is it better to use a local solicitor for conveyancing in East Midlands?

Typically, the biggest difference when using a local solicitor is how you are communicated with and the cost. A local solicitor may charge you by the hour, as that is their pricing structure for all the other types of legal work they are completing, whereas most online conveyancers are more competitively priced, offering other incentives such as a fixed fee quotation and a no move, no fee guarantee.

It might be worth checking out our handy checklist to steer you down the right route for you and your needs when it comes to an online conveyancer and a solicitor. Remember: property conveyancers solely focus on property law transactions, whereas a solicitor may be working on all other kinds of files and may even have court appearances that take them away from their desk, for example marital splits or criminal prosecution cases.

How does the conveyancing process work in the East Midlands?

The conveyancing process in the East Midlands and its counties will be no different to that of the rest of England and Wales. Once you have chosen a conveyancer and instructed them, they will begin the legal work of transferring the ownership of the property. This legal work includes arranging any searches required, raising enquiries on the property writing and ironing out the contract of sale, the transferring of monies, paying any Stamp Duty Land Tax and registering the title with the Land Registry.

What is the quickest time for conveyancing?

Unfortunately, this is a similar question to ‘how long is a piece of string?’, there is no precise answer. From our experience of transactions all across England and Wales we are able to tell that the average transaction time currently is 12-16 weeks from when a sale is agreed. Of course, this can only be a guide though as the time period all depends on the circumstances of your transaction, are you buying or selling? Is there a chain involved? How long is the current timing for local searches? These are all questions, and differences, which can affect the time to complete.

Instruct your conveyancer

Once you have instructed your conveyancer and provided all of the details to get started, they will be able to discuss timings with you to provide you with a realistic and achievable deadline. Although, please bear in mind, that this can change along the way, depending on if any issues or delays crop up. If you are moving out of rented accommodation, our conveyancers will never advise to hand in notice until the contracts have been exchanged and you have legally committed to a date.

Living in the East Midlands

There are plenty of things to do within the East Midlands, including the Peak District National Park, a popular area to both visit and live in due to its stunning landscapes from the edges to its reservoirs. The park has been shaped by its people and nature over thousands of years. The Heights of Abraham is an attraction within Matlock Bath in Derbyshire, presented on a hilltop called Masson Hill. Not forgetting Sherwood Forest well known within Nottinghamshire for the tales of Robin Hood. Sherwood Forest is also known for its oak tree, The Major Oak, this was probably the most famous resident of Sherwood Forest.

There are great transport links in the East Midlands, taking you to all these places and much more of the country, making the region an exciting place to live.
