Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Greenwich?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Greenwich, 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 Greenwich or perhaps not even in Greater London.
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 Greenwich - 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 Greenwich
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 Greenwich.
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 Greenwich
Greenwich is a borough situated in south east London. Like many London boroughs it was formed as a collaboration between the former metropolitan boroughs of Greenwich and part of Woolwich. It is a relatively large London borough, covering around 18 square miles and has a population of 268,678. It is best known as the location of the Prime Meridian, of which all Coordinated Universal time is based. this begins at the Greenwich Observatory which is in close proximity to The Royal Naval College, both of which are classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Royal Naval College also accommodates the majority of the University of Greenwich, which boasts a #1 ranking in terms of student satisfaction over all 20 listed London universities.
The borough also played an important role during the 2012 London Olympics, as the Royal Artillery Barracks hosted shooting events, Greenwich Park hosted Equestrianism and the O2 arena hosted Gymnastics and Basketball.
In terms of transport, Greenwich offers a variety of services. For one, there are foot tunnels underneath the River Thames going from Greenwich and Island Gardens and Woolwich and North Woolwich. A cable car linking the Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks also opened in 2012, and the Thames Clipper ferry service provides a connection between Woolwich to Canary Wharf and the City.
There are many railway stations in the borough, notably Abbey Wood, Eltham, Greenwich and Charlton, however the Underground only provides one station, North Greenwich (Jubilee line) and instead the area is connected by the Docklands Light Railway service- DLR.
