Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Bury St Edmunds?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Bury St Edmunds, and all documents would be hand-produced and posted or delivered by hand.

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 Bury St Edmunds or perhaps not even in Suffolk.
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 Bury St Edmunds
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 Bury St Edmunds.
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.
