Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Taunton Deane?

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

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 Taunton Deane - 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 Taunton Deane

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 Taunton Deane.

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 Taunton Deane

Taunton Deane is a local government district with borough status in Somerset. It has a total population of 112,817 as of mid-2014. The district's council is based in Taunton, which has a population of over 60,000.

Like many British government districts, Taunton Deane was formed on the 1st April 1974 through a collaboration of the Municipal Borough of Taunton, the Wellington Urban District, the Taunton Rural District and the Wellington Rural District. It was not until 1975 when the area was granted borough status.

As mentioned, the districts council is based in Taunton. It is the council town of Somerset, and acts as the economic centre for both the county and the district of Taunton Deane. The district has a low unemployment rate: 4.1% compared to the national average of 5.0% (2005), and this is mainly down to the array of employment opportunities in Taunton. It hosts the headquarters of the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO), which is a division of the Ministry of Defence. It employs over 1,000 people in the area, and is consequently a crucial employment sector within the town.

The town is also home to one of the head offices of Debenhams, Western Provident Association, Viridor and CANDAC. There are also local offices for Defra, Charity Commission for England and Wales and General Electric.

Taunton also hosts the major transport facilities in the district. For instance, Taunton railway station provides direct services to areas such as Bristol, Exeter, Reading, Manchester and Birmingham, as well as a less frequent service to London Paddington. There is also direct access to the M5 motorway.

The next largest settlement, Wellington, is the home of Wellington College, one of the leading public schools in the country.
