Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Great Yarmouth?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Great Yarmouth, 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 Great Yarmouth or perhaps not even in Norfolk.
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 Great Yarmouth
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 Great Yarmouth.
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 Great Yarmouth
Great Yarmouth is the name of both a local government district in Norfolk and the name of the town which is the home of the district's administrative HQ. The district has a population of 98,172 as of mid-2014, and over 70,000 of it's residents can be found in the town of Great Yarmouth. Other notable settlements in the district include Bradwell, Gorleston and Hemsby.
The district was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a merger of the former county borough of Great Yarmouth, along with the Blofield and Flegg Rural District and also the Lothingland Rural District in East Suffolk.
The economy of the district principally revolves around the town of Great Yarmouth, which is more colloquially known as 'Yarmouth'. It is a popular seaside resort and therefore a significant proportion of its industry revolves around tourism. Its coastal location also allowed it to flourish originally thanks to its fishing industry, however this declined drastically in the latter half of the 20th century. Nowadays, its economy is very lucrative due to the discovery of oil in the North Sea, and there are now a high frequency of businesses in the town who service and develop oil rigs. The development of renewable energy sources is also becoming more and more apparent with time, and is also creating a steady influx of employment opportunities.
Retail is also strong in the area, and there is a shopping centre called Market Gates, which houses 42 stores and services.
Yarmouth town is also home to the majority of the district's public services and amenities. It is home to a leisure centre, hospital and many other facilities. There also many sports clubs in the town, including a football club, know as Great Yarmouth Town F.C, rugby clubs, cricket clubs amongst others.
In terms of transport, the district is well connected, and again Great Yarmouth is the hub for many of the transport facilities. Great Yarmouth railway station is the main station in the district, and provides services to the likes of London Liverpool Street and Norwich, amongst other places.
There is also a highly reliable bus service in the area, and major roads include the A12, the A143 and the A47
