Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Walsall?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Walsall, 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 Walsall or perhaps not even in West Midlands.
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 Walsall - 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 Walsall
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 Walsall.
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 Walsall
Walsall is a large town situated in the West Midlands. The town itself has a population of 67,594, however the Metropolitan Borough of Walsall has a population of 269,323. Whilst the town has been and still is an industrial town, it offers a large commuting population. It is located just 8 miles north-west from Birmingham City and 6 miles east from Wolverhampton.
Historically, Walsall is a market town, however during the industrial revolution the town changed drastically. As a result of its manufacturing industries including Saddles, Chains and Buckles, the town's population went from 2,000 to over 86,000 in just 200 years. Revenue for the town was also generated through mining limestone nearby.
Since then its heavy industry has primarily declined, although the Queen's handbags are still made in the town, as are saddles for the royal family and other leathergoods for the Prince of Wales.
In 1980, the Saddlers' Centre was opened, a modern shopping complex, which has been refurbished several times since its opening. The town;s main shopping area, Park Street, has also been refurbished multiple times, including the erection of a new BHS department store, further increasing commercial revenue. On top of this, there have been cultural investments into the town, for example, in 2000, The New Art Gallery Walsall opened in the North West section of the town, with £21m of Public Funding.
The town may also receive economic support through its other cultural attractions, including either of its two museums; the Walsall Museum and the Walsall Leather Museum, or even from visitors to its sports facilities, such as Walsall Football Club. Nicknamed 'the Saddlers', Walsall F.C play at the Bescot Stadium, which has a capacity of just over 11,000. They currently play in the Football League One.
In terms of transport, Walsall railway station provides four trains an hour to Birmingham New Street, as well as regular trains to Wolverhampton Wanderers. There are also three daily services from Walsall to Liverpool Lime Street.
Walsall Bus Station also provides regular bus services to nearby areas such as Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Cannock and Sutton Coldfield.
On top of this, the town is extremely well connected through the road network. It is served by the M6 which in turn connects the town to the M1 offering a direct route to London, as well as the M74, which travels straight up to Glasgow. Manchester is also connected to Walsall through the A34.
