Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Carlisle ?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Carlisle , 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 Carlisle or perhaps not even in Cumbria.
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 Carlisle - 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 Carlisle
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 Carlisle .
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 Carlisle
Carlisle is a city and county town of Cumbria. It is also the administrative centre of the wider City of Carlisle borough. According to the 2011 census, the city has a population of 75,306, making it the largest settlement in the whole of Cumbria.
The city is also located at the confluence of the rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril.
Like many northern settlements, Carlisle began to develop substantially during the Industrial revolution, mainly through the production of cotton. This increase in industry also led to an increase in population, as jobs shifted from rural farms to the city.
Nowadays, manufacturing has died down significantly, however notable manufacturing firms that still exist in the area include Carr's of Carlisle, Kangol and Crown Holdings.
The service sector is much more significant in the city than it had been previously. Eddie Stobart Ltd still have their HQ in Carlisle, and employ around 600 staff in the city. Other significant employers have also included Cavanagh & Gray, who are part of Northern Foods.
On top of this, there are also a number of light industrial estates and business parks located on the fringes of Carlisle.
Carlisle United is the most principal sports team in the city. They currently play in the Football League One, at their home ground, Brunton Park, which has a capacity of 18,202 people.
There are also other less professional football clubs in the area, as well as two rugby union clubs, a rugby league team, cricket clubs, golf clubs and a racecourse.
In terms of transport, Carlisle is linked with the country via the M6 motorway, and to Scotland via the M74A74 towards Glasgow. The A6 also links the city with Penrith and Luton.
Carlisle Railway Station is the principal station in the town, and is situated on the West Coast Main Line. There are 8 platforms at the station, and long distance services are operated by Virgin Trains. There are services to both London Euston and Glasgow. There are other services to Birmingham New Street, Newcastle Central and Leeds.
