Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Torbay ?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Torbay , 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 Torbay or perhaps not even in Devon.
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 Torbay - 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 Torbay
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 Torbay .
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 Torbay
Torbay is a borough situated in Devon, in the south of England. The largest towns in the borough include Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, which have populations of 65,000, 49,000 and 16,500 respectively. The combined population of the borough is 130,959.
Torbay's economy largely revolves tourism, thanks to its seaside location, however there is also a fishing port at Brixham, which is one of the country's most successful fishing fleets, and frequently holds more value than any UK port outside Scotland.
In terms of transport, Torbay is primarily served by the A380 road from Exeter to Tweenaways Cross, Paignton and is part single and dual carriageway. The road, from Newton Abbot to Edginswell is single carriageway and is often congested in summer and during commuter hours. A bypass had been planned since as early as the 1930s and has come close on a few occasions to being built: the latest plan was halted in autumn 2008, and in October 2010 it was confirmed that the bypass was not one of the 24 schemes that had been approved. However, in November 2011 the government awarded £74.6 million towards the cost of the bypass, and the county council stated that it hoped that construction would start in October 2012 with completion in December 2015. As of July 2013, work on this plan is well begun.
Torbay's other main road links are the A379, which follows a coastal route from Teignmouth, passes through Torquay and Paignton, then goes on to Dartmouth; and the A385 which goes inland to Totnes and the A38.
Torbay has three stations, operated by First Great Western: Torre railway station is inland on the road from Torquay to Newton Abbot, Torquay railway station is close to Torre Abbey Sands and Paignton railway station serves that town and links with the heritage Dartmouth Steam Railway to Kingswear connecting via the Dart ferry to Dartmouth.
