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

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

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 Wigan - 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 Wigan

There isn't really any such thing as online conveyancing. Clients come to us for conveyancing in Wigan, Newtown, Whellley 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.

Fees for conveyancing in Wigan

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 Wigan.

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 Wigan

Wigan is a town in Greater Manchester, 16 miles west-northwest of Manchester and 7.9 miles south west of Bolton. According to the 2011 census it has a population of 97,000. It witnessed substantial development during the industrial revolution as well as a huge rise in population. At this point it became a significant milling and coal mining town. In more recent years, the former Westwood power station has been converted into the Westwood Park business park, which is soon to accommodate a 220,000 square-metre textiles centre, in co-operation with the Chinese firm Chinamex. It is to create approximately 1,000 jobs.

Aside from industry, there a number of reasons one may visit the town. The long history of the town is proved with it 216 listed buildings; 20 of which are Grade II*. Mesnes Park is also a popular tourist destination, receiving 2 million visitors every year. The Heritage Lottery Fund and the Wigan Metropolitan Borough have recently donated a combined sum of £3.4m to regenerate the park. Both the Pavilion and Grandstand are to be restored.

Other visitors may attend The DW Stadium, which is owned by Wigan Athletic F.C, although the stadium is shared with Wigan Warriors Rugby League Football Club, and the stadium is renown as one of the best rugby league stadiums in the country.

Since 1986, Wigan has also hosted an international jazz festival, and since 1992, the town has also been the home on the World Pie Eating Championship.

In terms of transport, the town lies as a meeting point between the A49 and the A577, which both link to the M6, M61 motorway and the M58 motorway. There are two railway stations in the town centre; Wigan North Western, which provides services to places such as London Euston and Glasgow, and Wigan Wallgate offers services to Southport and Kirkby.
