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

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Swindon, 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 Swindon or perhaps not even in Wiltshire.

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 Swindon - 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.

Online Conveyancing in Swindon

There isn't really any such thing as online conveyancing. Clients come to us for conveyancing in Swindon, Walcot, East Wichel and all sorts of other places, having first found us via our website.

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.

Whether you're moving to Swindon or away from Swindon to somewhere else, our conveyancing team can help you do so with the minimum of fuss and inconvenience.

Fees for conveyancing in Swindon

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 Swindon.

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 Swindon

Swindon is a large town in Wiltshire, with a population of 184,243, as of the 2011 census. Bristol is just 35 miles away to the west and Reading is just 35 miles to the east. London is also relatively close, being only 71 miles away.

Originally, Swindon was a notable market town, until about 1850, when it embraced the industrial revolution. The construction of the Wilts and Berks Canal in 1810 and the North Wilts Canal in 1819 allowed for trade to be brought to the area, and because of this, Swindon's population began to grow rapidly. This also allowed it to develop its renown history as a railway town.

Swindon Railway Station today provides frequent services, including connections to London and Manchester.

Nowadays however, Swindon's economy revolves around many international firms who have presence in the area. These include Honda, Nokia, Nationwide, W H Smith, and many others. Retail in the town is on a swift incline, with the Brunel Centre and the Parade being the shopping hotspots in the town.

Visitors or residents may also attend the county ground, Swindon Football Club's 15,000 capacity stadium. The club currently plays in the Football League One.
