Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Rochford?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Rochford, 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 Rochford or perhaps not even in Essex.
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 Rochford - 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 Rochford
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 Rochford.
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 Rochford
Rochford is a local government district in Essex, in the east of England. It has a population of 84,776 as of mid-2014. The majority of this population can be found in the larger towns of Rayleigh, Hockley and Rochford, which have populations of 32,150, 9,616 and 8,471 respectively. The latter is also home to the district's administrative HQ. Other notable areas in the district include Hockley, Ashingdon, Great Wakering, Canewdon and Hullbridge.
The district was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a merger of the Rayleigh Urban District and the Rochford Rural District.
Whilst a large amount of the district's population commute to London, which is just 32 miles away, the local economy is also strong. The population is mainly centered around the service sector, but the coastal location has also helped towns such as Rayleigh develop in the past.
Many of these towns also have a number of sports teams and public sports facilities. For instance, Rayleigh has a golf club, two cricket clubs, and a leisure centre which has a bowling green, four badminton courts, squash courts, a gymnasium and tennis courts.
Rochford also has a leisure centre called Clements Hall amongst other public facilities and amenities, such as Rochford public hospital, which was opened in 2009.
Across the district, the majority of the towns maintain an array of pubs and restaurants.
In terms of transport, the main services are unsurprisingly found in the larger towns. For instance, Rayleigh railway station provides very reliable, frequent services to areas such as Southend Victoria and London Liverpool Street. Rochford railway station is on the same line, and therefore provides similar services.
Major roads in the area include the A127 and the A130.
