Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Blackpool?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Blackpool, 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 Blackpool or perhaps not even in Lancashire.
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 Blackpool - 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.
Online Conveyancing in Blackpool

It might feel like online conveyancing because you can talk to us through email on your computer, but really it is proper conveyancing.

Fees for conveyancing in Blackpool
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 Blackpool.
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.
Introduction to Blackpool
Blackpool is a large seaside resort and borough in Lancashire, North West England. As of Mid-2014, the town had a population of 142,065.
Blackpool is also in a very small proximity to other large towns such as Preston, Liverpool and Manchester which are just 17.5, 27 and 40 miles away respectively.
In recent years, Blackpool has become incredibly dependent on tourism. Pleasure Beach amusement park in Blackpool is the most visited tourist attraction in the UK, and one of the most visited amusement parks in the world, with 5.5 million visitors in 2007.
Other attractions in the area include Blackpool Zoo and Sandcastle Waterpark, which are both included on the Blackpool Resort Pass, offering visitors a discounted price of entry to the attractions on one particular ticket. There is also The Grand Theatre, which has a capacity of 1,100, and a number of gardens and parks.
There are also various large scale employers in the area, including TVR, who only recently closed their sports car plant at the Bispham factory, Burton's Biscuits, Klarius and Victrex.
The Blackpool Illuminations also occur annually and act as another large scale tourist attraction. It usually spans the majority of the seafront.
Professional sport also has a large presence in the area. There are two main venues for boxing fight nights- the Tower Circus Arena and the Winter Gardens. Events at these venues have been screened on Sky Sports, Eurosport and Channel M.
Blackpool F.C is the town's main football club, and currently play in the Football League One. Their home ground is Bloomfield Road which has a population of !7,338. The club's major historical highlight was victory in the 1953 FA Cup.
On top of this, there are also wrestling events and a cricket club, who play at Stanley Park, which is regularly used for county matches.
In terms of transport, Blackpool is the home of Blackpool International Airport, which offers a range of domestic flights, as well as frequent services to areas such as Ireland.
Blackpool North is the town's principal railway station, and provides regular services to areas such as York, Leeds, Liverpool Lime Street, Manchester Victoria, as well as one train per hour to London Euston.
