Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Stratford-upon-Avon?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon, 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 Stratford-upon-Avon 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 Stratford-upon-Avon - 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 Stratford-upon-Avon
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 Stratford-upon-Avon.
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 Stratford-upon-Avon
Stratford-upon-Avon (locally known as Stratford), is a market town and civil parish in south Warwickshire. Geographically, Stratford lies on the River Avon, 22 miles south east of Birmingham and 8 miles south west of Warwick.
Stratford's economy largely revolves around tourism. The town is the birthplace of William Shakespeare, and the town is home to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, which accommodates the Royal Shakespeare Company. The theatre itself has a capacity of over 1000, which makes it suitable for a high footfall of tourists. On top of this, there are many other theatres, such as the Swan Theatre and The Black Box Theatre. Stratford has thrived substantially from its touristic value, and in 2010 the District Council spent £298,000 on tourism promotion.
Other sources of income include the town's retail, and whilst there are a number of high street stores within the town centre, there is also two shopping centres; The Maybird Shopping Park and The Rosebird Centre.
High profile shopping streets in the town include Henley Street, Sheep Street and Waterside and Southern Lane. There are also 5 supermarkets in the town, such as Waitrose, Aldi, M&S, Morrisons and Tesco.
In terms of transport, Stratford has very decent transport links. Birmingham is easily accessed from the city thanks to junction 15 of the M40 motorway. The 7 mile, £12m Stratford Northern Bypass opened in June 1987 as the A422.
Stratford-upon-Avon railway station boasts impressive services to areas such as Birmingham Snow Hill and Moor Street stations. There are also seven trains per day to London Marylebone.
Birmingham Airport is only 18 miles west of the town, and provides services to numerous national and international destinations.
