Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Thurrock?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Thurrock, 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 Thurrock or perhaps not even in Essex.
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 Thurrock - 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 Thurrock
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 Thurrock.
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 Thurrock
Thurrock, Essex, is both a unitary authority area and borough. It has a population of 163,270. It is located on the River Thames and subsequently on the London Commuter Belt. Present day borough was in fact formed in 1974 through the former area of the Thurrock Urban District.
Historically, the area was renown for its mineral extraction, including clay and chalk; and in Hangman's Wood a number of Deneholes can be found- large vertical shafts in the ground which were previously used for the excavation of chalk.
Nowadays, the service sector produces more than twice as much revenue as industry in Thurrock, however a large proportion of the population commute to London, and therefore transport in the area is exceptional. It is served by the M25 London Orbital Motorway which allows road users direct access into the capital. There are 8 railway stations in the area, and most stations are located on the Southend to London line, which provides extremely frequent commuter trains during peak times.
The Lakeside Shopping Centre is the main source of retail in the area, hosting over 245 stores and services.
