Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Rugby?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Rugby, 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 Rugby or perhaps not even in Warwickshire.
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 Rugby - 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 Rugby
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 Rugby.
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 Rugby
Rugby is a market town in Warwickshire, on the River Avon. According to the 2011 census, the town has a population of 70,628, making it the second largest town in the county. It is also the largest town in the surrounding Borough of Rugby, which has a population of 100,500.
Rugby is also 13 miles east of Coventry, and being a distinctively large city, many commute from Rugby to work there. That said, the local economy of Rugby is also strong. The town's economy is prominently industrial, being an engineering centre with a long history of producing gas and steam turbines at the GEC and the AEI, which provide a vast majority of the town's employment.
Cement making is also renown in the town, especially at the Rugby Cement works, which is now owned by the Mexican company, Cemex. The works was expanded significantly during the 1990s, and production at the Southam and Rochester were moved to the Rugby plant, which is consequently one of the largest of its types in Europe.
There are also a number of industrial estates in the town, and also within the borough is a Rolls-Royce engineering works, which is also a major employer.
The game of rugby supposedly began in the town, after William Webb-Ellis picked up the ball during a game of football at Rugby School, and decided to run with it. Because of this, the town attracts a moderate amount of tourism, and there is a museum in the town named the Webb Ellis Rugby Football Museum, which is one of the popular destinations for tourists.
There are a number of sports teams in the area, and unsurprisingly, the majority of them are rugby teams. There are 6 rugby union teams in the town, including Rugby Lions, Rugby Welsh, Rugby St Andrews, Newbold, AEI and Old Laurentian RFC. Rugby Town F.C is the towns non league football club, who play at Butlin Road, which has a capacity of 6,000.
In terms of transport, Rugby is served by a number of roads, including the M6, M1 and M45 motorways as well as the A45 road. Less important roads include the A426 and the A428.
Rugby railway station serves the town as well, and is a relatively large station with 6 platforms. It is situated on the West Coast Mainline. London Midland services provide 3 trains per hour to Birmingham New Street via Coventry, 4 trains per hour to London Euston and 1 train per hour to Northampton. There are also frequent services to ares such as Wolverhampton, Crewe and Stafford.
