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

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 Fareham
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 Fareham.
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 Fareham
Fareham is a borough and local government district in Hampshire. The population of the district is 114,331, as of mid 2014. The council of the district is based in the town of Fareham, which is by far the largest settlement, with a population of 97,504.
The district was formed on the 1st April 1974, and was reconstituted as a non-metropolitan district. It also gained borough status in 1974. Fareham district is in very close proximity to the large cities of Portsmouth and Southampton, and much of the borough covers their semi urban areas. Furthermore, Portchester is just 4 miles away from the Portsmouth city centre.
Being the largest town in the borough, Fareham also acts as the area's commercial hub, as well as a commuter town for the larger nearby cities. For instance, the town is a historic manufacturer of bricks, and such bricks have been used to create many renown landmarks, notably the Royal Albert Hall in London. Agriculture has also shown prominence in the town in the past, and it is particularly known for growing Strawberries.
Furthermore, the town also maintains a large shopping centre, which was built in 1999, and currently houses over 100 shops. Other industries include small scale manufacturing and defence, the latter of which provides significant employment to the town, with the Royal Navy's HMS Collingwood and the MoD's Design Science and Technology Laboratory nearby.
Fareham is also supported by decent transport links, including road and rail. The M27 motorway passes through the area, and provides easy access to both Portsmouth and Southampton, and from there to London via the M3 and A3. The A27 and A32 are also useful links in the town, providing access to Brighton and Southampton, as well as Gosport and Wickham respectively.
Fareham railway station is the main station in the district, and currently maintains three platforms. There are frequent services to Southampton Central and Portsmouth and Southsea, as well as London Victoria and London Waterloo, Brighton and Cardiff Central.
