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

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

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 Richmond - 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.

Richmond Conveyancing

Online Conveyancing in Richmond

There isn't really any such thing as online conveyancing. Clients come to us for conveyancing in Richmond, Twickenham, St Margarets 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.

Every local authority is different. We use an excellent, trusted national search provider, which means we can provide searches to clients in Richmondand 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.

What is the process to instruct us for your conveyancing?

First, fill in our conveyancing quote form for conveyancing in Richmond. You can find the links at the top of this page.

Our helpful conveyancing support team will then guide you through the initial stages, and once your conveyancing file is opened your Richmond conveyancing solicitor and their small team will deal with the legal side of the conveyancing transaction. You'll be given direct contact details for your conveyancing lawyers and they'll keep in touch with you every step of the way.

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

Fees for conveyancing in Richmond

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 Richmond.

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 Richmond

Richmond is a suburban town in southwest London and 8.2 miles West-Southwest of Charing Cross, with a population of 21,469 according to the 2011 census. The town itself is located on a meander of the River Thames and that along with its various parks and open spaces show for a very scenic town. A parliamentary act has protected the scenic view of the Thames from Richmond.

Richmond palace has been a hub for residency for vast amounts of royals after Henry VII built it in the 16th century.

The town has the most substantial commercial centre in the Borough and is classified now as a major centre according to the London plan. Its retail is largely based on high street chains such as House of Fraser, Marks and Spencer, Boots and Waitrose, as well as a Whole Foods Market which was opened in October 2013. Furthermore, Richmond also hosts various headquarters for an array of Trans-National Companies such as eBay and PayPal. Since this development, Richmond has been described as 'the beating heart of London's growing technology industry' by the London Evening Standard.

However the town also hosts areas of natural beauty such as Richmond Green on which cricket matches have occurred since the mid-18th century, Richmond Hill, and Richmond Park which is home to over 600 red and fallow dear.

Various Pubs and Bars which date back to 1770 are present, as well as a variety of Restaurants and Cafes, of which some have been awarded Michelin Stars.

The town is also connected via the London Underground, through Richmond station which hosts the District line, London Overground and the Waterloo to Reading line. The town is also provided with a variety of London buses and hence the statistic that 30% of Richmond households do not have a car/van.

Nearby areas include Twickenham, Chiswick and Isleworth.
