Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Chorley?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Chorley, 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 Chorley or perhaps not even in Lancashire.
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 Chorley - 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 Chorley
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 Chorley.
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 Chorley
Chorley is a market town in Lancashire, North West England. It is also the largest settlement in the Borough of Chorley, with a population of 34,667, according to the 2011 census. The town developed, like much of Lancashire, as a result of the cotton trade mainly during the Industrial Revolution, as well as through its market town status, which was substantial, due to Chorley being located between four other major settlements.
Nowadays, Chorley's proximity to these other towns has meant that it has become an commuter town. Wigan is only located 8.1 miles south, Blackburn is only 10.8 miles north east, Bolton is only 11 miles south east and Preston is only 12 miles to the north. Furthermore, Manchester is only 20 miles south east.
Despite this, there is still a good amount of localised economy. For instance, there are companies such as FedEx, CSC, BAE Systems and Leyland Trucks, who all have widespread presence in the area, and consequently employ significant amounts of people.
Retail has also developed in the town in recent years, with the town centre being the main location for shopping facilities in the town. The centre has undergone huge redevelopment, with projects such as the Market Walk being completed, which is home to shops such as GAME, JD Sports and EE.
Other developments include the extension of various retail parks, the erection of various supermarkets such as Asda and Morrisons.
Chorley is also home to the semi-professional football club, Chorley F.C. Their ground, Victory Park, has a capacity of over 3,500. They currently play in the Conference North league.
There are also both rugby union and rugby league sides in the town, fitness clubs, cycling clubs, as well as a number of cricket clubs.
In terms of transport, Chorley is bisected by the A6 Roman road, which goes straight through the town centre. Junctions 6 and 8 of the M61 serve the town, as does Junction 27 of the M6 motorway.
The principal railway station in the town is Chorley railway station, which is served by train operators such as First TransPennine Express and Northern Rail. There are frequent services to areas such as Manchester Piccadilly, Preston, Manchester Victoria and Blackpool.
