Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Redcar and Cleveland?

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 Redcar and Cleveland or perhaps not even in North Yorkshire.

Fees for conveyancing in Redcar and Cleveland
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 Redcar and Cleveland.
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 Redcar and Cleveland
Redcar and Cleveland is a borough and unitary authority in the Tees Valley region in North Yorkshire, North East England. As of mid 2014, the area has a population of 135,042, and consists of the large towns of Redcar, Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Guisborough, which all make up a large majority of the population.
The district was formed in 1974, under the name of the Borough of Langbaurgh, which was one of four districts of the new non-metropolitan county of Cleveland. It was formed through an amalgamation of the Coatham, Kirkleatham, Ormesby, Redcar and South Bank wards of Teesside, along with the Guisborough, Loftus, Saltburn and Marske-by-the-Sea, Eston Grange and Skelton and Brotton urban districts, from the North Riding of Yorkshire. In January 1988, the borough was renamed Langbaurgh-on-Tees, and it was not until 1996, when Cleveland County was abolished, and Langbaurgh was renamed Redcar and Cleveland.
The local economy revolves predominantly around steel and chemical manufacture. Thai Steel producers SSI are located in the town, and they are renown for operating the largest blast furnace in Europe. There is also a chemical industry park known internationally as Wilton, which also acts a large scale employer for the town.
In terms of transport, the town of Redcar acts as the principal transport hub, with decent access to many roads as well as being the home to three railway stations. Firstly, there is British Steel Redcar, which primarily offers domestic services, for the steel workers. Redcar Central and Redcar East also provide similar services to areas such as Middlesbrough and Darlington. There are also less frequent services on the East Coast line to areas such as Newcastle upon Tyne and Darlington as well as Durham and Chester-le-Street.
