Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Bolton?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Bolton, 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 Bolton or perhaps not even in Greater Manchester.
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 Bolton - 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 Bolton
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 Bolton.
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 Bolton
Bolton is a relatively large town in Greater Manchester with a population of 139,403, according to the 2001 census. Since the 14th century, the town has been significantly important as a production centre for textile, notably cotton and wool, and this became largely apparent during the Industrial Revolution, when the town was able to develop to a large extent. Bolton's proximity to Manchester no doubt aided this development; it lies just 10 miles northwest of the City.
Nowadays, heavy industry has been replaced to a large extent with the service sector, such as call centres, IT and hi-tech electronics, and there were only 18.71% of the employed population in the manufacturing industry.
Industry aside, there are many reasons as to why Visitors may visit Bolton. In the town centre lies a Grade II* listed town hall, which was extended in the 1930s. There are also 26 conservation areas, containing 700 listed buildings between them. Many of these are in the town centre, however there is also parkland in areas such as Victorian Queen's Park and Leverhulme Park.
In terms of transport, the town hosts useful local and national road routes, such as the A6 and the A666. The Bolton interchange is located on the West Coast Mainline and served by Virgin West Coast, and provides services to Manchester Piccadilly as well as the South of England.
