Why don't you need a conveyancer based in North Tyneside?

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of North Tyneside, 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 North Tyneside or perhaps not even in Tyne and Wear.

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 North Tyneside - 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 North Tyneside

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 North Tyneside.

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 North Tyneside

North Tyneside is a metropolitan borough within the county of Tyne and Wear, North East England. According to the 2011 census it has a population of 202,744. The borough was formed in April 1974 through a collaboration of the county borough of Tynemouth, the borough of Wallsend, part of Whitley Bay, the urban district of Longbenton and part of Seaton Valley, all of which were in Northumberland.

Traditionally, the area was a very significant centre for heavy industry, mainly due to the fact that it is situated on top of a large coalfield that covers the entirety of the South East of Northumberland. Shipbuilding has also been prominent in the area, and firms such as Swan Hunter have developed in areas such as Wallsend. Despite this, like many other areas in the North East, heavy industry has declined, and the areas within North Tyneside have become affluent dormitory suburbs to larger areas, like Newcastle.

Many visit the area to see the Segedunum Roman Fort at Wallsend, which is located at the end of Hadrian's Wall. The Stephenson Railway Museum is also located in New York, which is popular amongst tourists, as is the Blue Reef Aquarium, in Tynemouth.

In terms of transport, the A19 road allows easy access to the A1 just north of Newcastle, and the Coast Road also runs from Newcastle to the coast. The East Coast Main line and Blyth and Tyne railway routes run through the borough, however the nearest railway station is Newcastle Central. There is a substantial bus network, with many routes offering direct services to Newcastle. On top of this, there is an international ferry terminal at the Royal Quays, offering services to Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands.
