Why don't you need a conveyancer based in East Dorset ?

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

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 East Dorset - 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.

It might feel like online conveyancing because you can talk to us through email on your computer, but really it is proper conveyancing.

Fees for conveyancing in East Dorset 

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 East Dorset .

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 East Dorset 

East Dorset is a local government district in Dorset, in the south west of England. As of mid-2014, the district has a population of 88,186. The majority of this found in the larger settlements of Corfe Mullen, Ferndown and Verwood, which have populations of 10,133, 26,559 and 14,852 respectively. The district's council is based in Furzehill, Wimbourne.

Like many British government districts, East Dorset was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a merger of the Wimbourne Minster Urban District with part of the Ringwood and Fordingbridge Rural District and the Wimborne and Cranborne Rural District. 

The bigger towns such as Ferndown and Verwood also act as the economic hubs for the district. For instance, Ferndown is home to the Ferndown and Uddens Industrial Estates, which forms the largest industrial area in East Dorset, containing a wide range of both small and large businesses.
Verwood is considered the more focal shopping area. There are two main areas: one in the town centre and one in Pennine Way, where there is also a superstore. 

The larger towns also have the majority of the district's sport facilities, such as Verwood Rugby Union Football Club, Verwood Town F.C and Ferndown Forest Golf Club. Ferndown is also home to a leisure centre which has two heated pools, a sports hall, a fully equipped gymnasium, squash courts and a rifle range as well as a power house suite. 

The district has poor railway connections, with one of the nearest stations being outside the district in Branksome, 6.8 miles away.

Despite this, towns such as Ferndown lie adjacent with the A31 trunk road, which subsequently connects the town with the M27 and the M3. Verwood also has good connections with the A31 and the A338.
