Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Castle Point?

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Castle Point, 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 Castle Point or perhaps not even in Essex.

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 Castle Point - 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 Castle Point

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 Castle Point.

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 Castle Point

Castle Point is a local government district and borough in south Essex, just 30 miles from London. As of mid-2014, the population of the district is 86,608, and the majority of this population can be found in the larger towns of Hadleigh, Thundersley and Canvey Island, which have populations of 18,300, 15,600 and 38,170 respectively. Thundersley is also home to the district's administrative HQ.

The district was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a merger of the Benfleet Urban District and the Canvey Island Urban District. It was granted borough status in 1992.

The larger towns all act as economic hotspots for the district. There is a large commuting population due to the districts proximity to London, however the local economy is also strong. Retail is strong- and areas such as Canvey Island provide a large amount of facilities.

Canvey Island also accommodates many of the district's sporting and leisure facilities.

In terms of transport, the district is served well, and this serves the London Commuters very well. Benfleet railway station is one of the main stations, and provides frequent services to the likes of London Fenchurch Street, Basildon, Southend Central and Shoeburyness.

Major roads in the district include the A127 and the A130.
