Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Buckinghamshire?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Buckinghamshire, 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 Buckinghamshire or perhaps not even in Buckinghamshire.
We have successfully dealt with thousands of conveyancing transactions all over the country, even with clients from the other side of the world.

Fees for conveyancing in Buckinghamshire
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 Buckinghamshire.
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 Buckinghamshire
Buckinghamshire is a county in the south east of England. It has a population of around 756,600, as of mid 2014. It contains a number of notable settlements, such as the county town of Aylesbury, High Wycombe and Milton Keynes. These towns are all significant in their own right.
Being the largest town with a population of around 229,941, Milton Keynes is probably the most renown town. It is located around 45 miles North West of London.
From the 1950s onwards, overspill housing for many London Boroughs had been erected in Bletchley, due to rapid population growth. In the 1960s, North Buckinghamshire was identified as a possible site for a large new town/city in order to relieve this Housing Congestion in London. It was to have a target population of 250,000. In 2004 that target was to be doubled by 2026, as planned by John Prescott MP.
Milton Keynes's music scene has proved to be particularly vibrant. Venues such as the open air National Bowl has a capacity of 65,000, and often holds large scale events, as well as the Stables in Wavendon, which often hosts jazz, blues, folk and rock music.
Milton Keynes is also progressively becoming a business centre, hosting the UK headquarters for many firms including Argos, Domino's pizza, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. As a result of this, in January 2015, Milton Keynes had seen the highest growth in jobs out of the biggest 64 towns and cities in the UK during the preceding decade. Between 2004 and 2013, Milton Keynes number of jobs increased by 18.2%.
The Town's sport mainly revolves around Football, Ice Hockey and Formula One. The MK Dons Football team play in the Championship, and the Milton Keynes Lightning Ice Hockey team and Red Bull Racing teams are also prolific.
Milton Keynes's transport services are also notable. There are direct rail connections to Birmingham Airport, and Luton Airport is accessible by Bus. The Town also has five railway stations; Milton Keynes Central which offers services to London, and the smaller stations of Fenny Stratford, Bow Brickhill, Wolverton and Woburn Sands provide more local services.
Buckinghamshire also consists of a number of smaller, very upmarket towns and villages. One of these is Beaconsfield, a market town and civil parish situated within the South Bucks district. It is located 23.6 miles (38 km) WNW of London. Four other towns are within 5 miles: Slough, Amersham, Gerrards Cross and High Wycombe. Amersham is located as the last station on the Metropolitan tube line, making transport to Central London particularly accessible.
The town is adjacent to the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty , and also has a vast array of Georgian, neo-Georgian and Tudor high street architecture. It is also celebrated for the first model village in the world, and Beaconsfield film studios.
The M40 runs very close to the town with its eponymous Junction 2 on the Parish boundary. Local roads such as the A355 connect Amersham and Slouch via Beaconsfield. The A40 parallels the M40 from London to Oxford and for years was the main road between the two cities as its precursor.
Beaconsfield railway station connects the town to Birmingham Snow Hill and Moor Street as well as London Marylebone.
