Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Harrow?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Harrow, 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 Harrow 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 Harrow - 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 Harrow
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 Harrow.
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 Harrow
Harrow is a borough situated in north-west London. It is moderately large for a London borough, with a population of 246,011, and covering an area of 19.49 square miles.
Like many London boroughs, it was formed in 1965 through a collaboration of the former areas of Harrow on the Hill, Hendon and Wealdstone.
The affluence of the borough is highly contrasted; many areas such as Harrow on the Hill can have average house prices at around £1,500,000, whereas the surrounding areas represent much cheaper housing.
The borough is located on the greenbelt, however access into central London is easy. Marylebone is around 20 minutes by train and Euston is 12. There is an array of stations which one can travel from, the most notable being Harrow-on-the-hill, Sudbury Hill Harrow and Harrow & Wealdstone. There are also many tube stations which provide access to central London such as Stanmore, Pinner and Canons Park.
In terms of the economy, there are an array of large firms such as Kodak and Ladbrokes, who have their headquarters in Harrow and provide substantial employment to a large percentage of Harrow's residents.
There are many sports teams who also are situated in Harrow. Barnet Football Club is the only professional club, playing in League Two. However there are three other clubs; Wealdstone F.C, Harrow Borough F.C and Rayners Lane F.C. There is also a professional rugby league team, The London Broncos, who compete in the Kingstone Press Championship.
There are an array of educational facilities in the area, ranging from pre-school to sixth form, however the most renown school in the area is probably Harrow School, which evidence suggests could have been in existence since the year 1243, and is one of the leading public schools in the country.
