Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Ipswich ?

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

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 Ipswich - 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.


Online Conveyancing in Ipswich 

There isn't really any such thing as online conveyancing. Clients come to us for conveyancing in Ipswich , Sproughton , Rushmere and all sorts of other places, having first found us via our website.

After that, the relationship between you and your conveyancer is the same as any other. We have the same professional obligations towards you, and deal with your conveyancing file in the same way.

It might feel like online conveyancing because you can talk to us through email on your computer, but really it is proper conveyancing.

Search Fees in Ipswich 

Every local authority is different. We use an excellent, trusted national search provider, which means we can provide searches to clients in Ipswich and all over the country, knowing that we will get a product we're happy with and which we know is properly insured and protects your interests.

Whether you're moving to Ipswich or away from Ipswich to somewhere else, our conveyancing team can help you do so with the minimum of fuss and inconvenience.

Fees for conveyancing in Ipswich 

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 Ipswich .

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 Ipswich 

Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk, southern England. It is a large town, with borough status and a population of 133,384. The town itself is situated on the River Orwell, and nearby towns include Felixstowe, Woodbridge, Needham Market and Stowmarket. 

Ipswich's economy used to mainly revolve around agriculture, and firms such as Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies Ltd, one of the country's most famous agricultural manufacturers, used to be present in the town.

There was, until 2001, a major sugar beet factory in the town as well.
Other industries in the area include the service sector, which has been dominated in the past by firms such as BT. Others include AXA, Churchill, LV and Willis. 

Cultural attractions in the town include Ipswich Museum and the Ipswich Transport Museum which are both popular amongst tourists and residents. There is also the New Wolsey Theatre- a 400 seat theatre located on Civic Drive.

Ipswich Arts Festival, also known as 'Ip-art', has occurred annually since 2003, and often hosts visual arts, performing arts, literature, film and music events. There is also an annual jazz festival which started in 2015. 

Some of the town's sporting venues can also be classed as 'Cultural Attractions'. Portman Road is the most obvious example of this. It is the home of Ipswich Town Football Club, who currently play in the Championship. The ground has a capacity of 30,311 and can therefore accommodate large amounts of home and away fans.

There are also a number of non-league clubs, a speedway team, a gymnastics centre, and multiple swimming clubs. 

In terms of transport, Ipswich is close to the A14 and A12 roads, which provides access to nearby and long distance areas. The town is also on the Great Eastern Main Line from London to Norwich and the East Suffolk Line to Lowestoft as well as the Felixstowe Branch Line.

There are frequent services to areas such as London Liverpool Street and Norwich.

The town is also only 40 minutes from Stansted Airport.
