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

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Islington, 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 Islington 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 Islington - 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 Islington

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.

Fees for conveyancing in Islington

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 Islington.

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 Islington

The London Borough of Islington is a Borough situated in Inner London, with a population of 221,030 as of Mid-2014. Like the majority of the London Boroughs, it is a relatively new district, and was formed in 1965 as a combination of the metropolitan boroughs of Islington and Finsbury.

Despite this, the new district is the second smallest London Borough, but contains many notable locations within, such as Kings Cross, the railway hub of London, Farringdon and Finsbury.

Islington itself is the most notable area in the Borough, being very politically active, with three Parliamentary constituencies, Islington East, North and South West. Islington's town hall is also a listed building and is the council chambers of the successor authority; the Borough of Islington.

In terms of transport, Islington is supported by many services. It has ten Underground stations such as Farringdon, Angel and Arsenal, as well as five Overground stations and six regular railway stations. Because of this, use of the Underground, Metro, Light rail or Tram is the most popular amongst residents, with 19.4% using them. 

Aside this, there are many locations which can attract visitors. The Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal Football Club attracts fans from both home and away, The Islington Museum, The Union Chapel, which is Grade I listed, as well as many more sights of interest. 

In terms of education, there are two higher education facilities in the borough, both the City University, founded in 1894, and the London Metropolitan University which was formed in 2002 after the collaboration of the University of North London and London Guildhall. The City and Islington College and the Westminster Kingsway College provide facilities for further education on top of the 47 primary schools and 10 secondary schools which are in the borough.
