Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Shrewsbury?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Shrewsbury, 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 Shrewsbury or perhaps not even in Shropshire.
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 Shrewsbury - 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 Shrewsbury
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 Shrewsbury.
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 Shrewsbury
Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire, West Midlands, England. It is situated on the River Severn, and has an approximate population of 72,000.
The town is renown for its history. It is a market town whose centre has a largely unaltered medieval street plan, with a whopping 660 listed buildings, the majority of which display examples of timber framing from the 15th and 16th centuries. Notable examples of this include Shrewsbury Castle, a red sandstone fortification, and Shrewsbury Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery
Because of this, Shrewsbury has a strong tourist base, who visit for both the history and the retail. Being less than 10 miles from the Welsh border, Shrewsbury acts as a strong retail base for both Staffordshire and a good amount of Wales. There are four shopping centres, such as Pride Hill, and the largest, Darwin, which accommodates over 50 stores. There are also further development projects in place for the future.
The town has an overall retail output of over £299 million a per year, and the visitor economy is worth over £115 million.
Aside from tourism and retail, other notable parts of the local economy include light industry, which is based at areas such as Battlefield Enterprise Park. Whilst not as large as Burton on Trent, Shrewsbury has always had a large contingent of breweries.
Shrewsbury has a really strong sense of culture, not just in its architecture, but in its media, arts and literature. It is also home to Shrewsbury School, one of the country's leading public schools. Set up in 1552, notable alumni include musician Tim Booth, cricketer James Taylor, and Christopher Booker, the founder of Private Eye.
In terms of transport, Shrewsbury railway station is one of the main facilities, and provides frequent services to the likes of Chester, Wrexham General, Birmingham International, Cardiff Central, Manchester Piccadilly and London Euston.
Main roads in the area include the A5, the A53, the A49 and the A458.
