Why don't you need a conveyancer based in High Peak?

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

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 High Peak

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 High Peak.

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 High Peak

High Peak is a borough in Derbyshire, in the East Midlands. As of mid-2014, the population of the district is 91,364. The majority of this population is found in the two towns of Buxton and Glossop, which have populations of 20,836 and 33,020 respectively. They both also act as the administrative HQ for the borough.

Like many British districts, High Peak was formed was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a merger of the municipal boroughs of Buxton and Glossop and the urban districts of New Mills and Whaley Bridge as well as the rural district of Chapel-en-le-Frith.

Being the largest towns in the district, Glossop and Buxton also act as the economic hubs for the district. Historically, Glossop developed as a result of its cotton industry, and this flourished enormously during the Industrial Revolution, although it also had a strong paper milling industry. Nowadays its economy mainly revolves around the service sector, as well as retail, and the town's main street is home to a number of shops, restaurants and food outlets.

Buxton's individual economy is much more centered around quarrying, light industry and mineral water extraction. There are a number of limestone quarries around the town, and overall they employ around 350 people.

The town is also home to the renown Buxton Mineral Water Company, which is considered a market leader in the country.

Both towns also receive a considerable amount of tourism, due to the majority of the surrounding area being the Peak District National Park.

The area also has very strong transport links, which again, are mainly located in Buxton and Glossop. Buxton railway station provides frequent services to the likes of Manchester Piccadilly, Blackpool North, Wigan North Western and Preston, and Glossop railway station provides similar services to Manchester Piccadilly, Dinting and Hadfield.

There are also reliable bus services in the area, and Glossop in particular has good access to roads such as the A57, the A624 and the A628.
