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

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Shropshire, 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 Shropshire 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 Shropshire - 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.

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.

Fees for conveyancing in Shropshire

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 Shropshire.

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 Shropshire

Shropshire is a county located in the West Midlands, bordering Powys and Wrexham in Wales, Cheshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Hertfordshire. It has a population of around 473,900 as of 2014, and has an incredibly low population density. It is relatively large for a county, covering 1,346 square miles.
Shropshire revolves economically around five towns; Shrewsbury, which boasts the historic importance of the county, Telford, a notably new town and the most populated in the county, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Ludlow, which poses great importance as a market town.

Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire, has a population of around 72,000 and its historic significance allows for substantial tourism. Its street plan is largely medieval, and hosts over 660 listed buildings. Out of these, Shrewsbury Castle and Shrewsbury Abbey are the most renown. It is also home to Shrewsbury school, an independent co-educational school, which was founded in 1552. 

Aside from Shrewsbury, there are many other reasons as to why one may visit Shropshire. South Shropshire is significantly more rural and lacks any major urban settlements, apart from Bridgnorth. It also hosts The Shropshire Hills, which are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which covers an area of around 312 square miles. The highest hill in the area is Brown Clees Hill, which is 540 metres high.

The Iron Bridge gorge area has become a popular tourist destination. The area itself is idyllic- however it also accommodates the famous Iron Bridge, a 30 metre long cast iron bridge which was built in 1779, and is a Grade I listed building.

Shropshire's proximity to Wales also means that parts of Shropshire, such as Shrewsbury have become an important transport link and economic hub to Wales. Shrewsbury is the most notable station, connecting the county to both Wales as well as London Euston.
