Conveyancing in Leicestershire
Buying and Selling in Leicestershire
Leicestershire is a mid-sized county at the heart of England. It takes its name from its county town of Leicester, the area’s largest settlement, which is located at its centre. Other popular spots include the university town of Loughborough, the rural district of Harborough, the conveniently located town of Hinckley.

The local authority responsible for property in the region is Leicestershire County Council. As Leicestershire is a densely-populated region, governance is largely devolved to its district councils, including the ability to set council tax rates. That means that how much council tax you need to pay will vary, depending on which part of Leicestershire your property falls into.
The local area
Located in the East Midlands, Leicestershire is a county of wonderful contrasts. With the historic city of Leicester providing all the urban amenities you could need, the surrounding landscapes are beautiful, littered with quaint towns and villages that promise a pleasing balance of convenient yet rural life. Not only is it home to village of Quorn, which gives its name to a globally renowned meat substitute, but also to the town of Melton Mowbray – the birthplace of the pork pie.
A landlocked county in the middle of England, Leicestershire is well connected from a transport perspective. The M1 cuts through the country from north to south, just to the edges of Leicester and Loughborough, offering access both to the capital and the cities of the north. East Midlands Trains provide rail services throughout the county, with stations in Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, Loughborough and Leicester. You’ll find direct services to cities like Birmingham, Derby and London at these stations. There’s no major airport in Leicestershire, but the closest for most living in the county is either East Midlands Airport or Birmingham Airport, both being just outside the county line.
