Why don't you need a conveyancer based in King's Lynn?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of King's Lynn, 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 King's Lynn or perhaps not even in Norfolk.
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 King's Lynn - 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 King's Lynn
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 King's Lynn.
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 King's Lynn
King's Lynn is a seaport and market town in Norfolk, on the east coast of England. It is located about 97 miles north of London and 44 miles west of Norwich. As of 2007 the town's population was $2,800.
Due to its coastal location, the town has grown as a result of its fishing and seafood industry- especially prawns, shrimps and cockles. On top of this, there have been successful glass making firms, as well as a number of small scale engineering works. There is also a number of agricultural-related businesses, especially including food processing.
In 2008, the town's port was the fastest growing port in Great Britain.
In terms of retail, King's Lynn is the focal point in West Norfolk. The town centre is lined with many largely budget shops, as well as a number of entertainment centres, bars and restaurants, employing around 5,300 people.
King's Lynn also hosts a number of cultural attractions, including Festival Too, a music festival held in the Town's market place each year in summer. There are also numerous venues for concerts, comedy shows, as well as a few cinemas.
King's Lynn Football Club is the town's principal sports club, and their ground, The Walks Stadium, has a capacity of over 5,000. On top of this, there is also a speedway team, a basketball team and a local field hockey team.
In terms of transport, the town is connected to Norwich and Peterborough via the A47, and to Cambridge via the A10. Other areas in Norfolk are accessed by the A148 and the A149.
Much of the town's infrastructure is undergoing severe redevelopment, and in 2010 a new cycle and bus route was created at a cost of £850,000, and there are many small developments making junctions more car friendly.
King's Lynn railway station is the only railway station in the town, and provides services to areas such as Cambridge and London King's Cross. It is also one of the last remaining stations in that area of Norfolk.
