Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Cheshire?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Cheshire, 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 Cheshire or perhaps not even in Cheshire.
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!

Fees for conveyancing in Cheshire
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 Cheshire.
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 Cheshire
Cheshire is a county in North West England, bordering Merseyside and Greater Manchester to the North, Derbyshire to the East, Staffordshire and Shropshire to the south and Wales to the West. As of mid-2014, the population of the county is 1,028,600, and much of this population can be found in the large towns of Chester, Warrington and Crewe, however there are also a number of other settlements which are also significant in their own right.
Cheshire West and Chester is a unitary authority district with borough status in Cheshire. As of 2014 it has a population of 332,210. It is a particuarly new area, being formed in 2009 after the 2009 structural changes to local governments in England.
As a council, the area maintains six Nature Reserves: Burton Mill Wood, Rivacre Valley, Stanney Wood and Whitby Park are all located in Ellesmere Port and Helsby Quarry and Marshall's Arm are both in Vale Royal.
The majority of the population of the area is British Born, standing at 95.1%, and in terms of religion in 70.1% of the population is Christian, whereas 22% claim to follow no religion.
Chester is the most notable location within the area, containing 120,662 of the area's population. It is a walled city and has been preserved exceptionally well; one of the most successfully maintained in the country. Substantial development was carried out during the industrial revolution, with the introduction of railways, canals and new roads. The town is also renown for what is called the 'Chester Rows'. They are effectively walkways latched onto the first floor of street buildings, allowing two storeys of Shops on regular street buildings. This, combined with the remarkable black and white architecture has allowed it to be a notable tourist destination. Much of this black and white architecture accommodates various pubs, bars and nightclubs.
Chester stands as the hub of the railway network in the Borough, with four million trips recorded every year, and hosts railway line ssuch as the North Wales Coast Line and the Chester Manchester Line.
Warrington is a large town in Cheshire, on the banks of the River Mersey, with a population of 206,428 as of mid 2014. It lies just 18.5 miles east of Liverpool, and 16 miles west of Manchester.
Due to its proximity to these large settlements, the town substantially thrived during the industrial revolution, becoming common manufacturers of steel, textiles, brewing and tanning. Due to this, the River Mersey's navigational routes were improved, canals were built and generally the town became a lot more popular and prosperous.
Nowadays, the economy revolves around a number of factors; IKEA opened one of their first British stores in the UK in Warrington in 1987, bringing more than 200 jobs to the area. There is also a large Unilever factory near the town which provides even more employment to the area. Despite being in the vicinity of the Larger settlements of the North West, Warrington still has one of the larger shopping centres in the area. Bridge Street is the most obvious shopping street in the town, however the Golden Square Shopping Centre, which opened in 1974, also provides decent shopping opportunities.
In terms of education, the town has two main railway stations, one being Bank Quay, which runs between London Euston and Glasgow Central on the West Coast Main Line, and Warrington Central which is on the Liverpool to Manchester Line. The town is also close to the M62, M6 and M56 motorways and lies halfway between the Liverpool and Manchester Airports.
There are many tourist attractions in the town as well. There is a concert hall, known as the Parr Hall, an arts centre called the Pyramid, and the Warrington Museum & Art Gallery. Tourists may also come to watch or play the towns most premier sport- Rugby League.
