Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Woking ?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Woking , 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 Woking or perhaps not even in Surrey .
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 Woking - 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 Woking
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 Woking .
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 Woking
Woking is a large town located in the west of Surrey. The town has a population of 62,796, whilst the wider borough of Woking has a population of nearly 100,000. Due to the town's proximity to London, it acts as an important commuter town, and is in fact situated on the London commuter belt. It is located just 23 miles southwest of Charing Cross.
Thousands of people commute to London every day, and for that reason Woking's economy is not incredibly localised. However, there are a few notable firms who have large scale presence in the area. These include McLaren Group, whose sub-branches include McLaren Racing, who are responsible for a range of Formula One racing cars and endorse drivers such as Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso, as well as McLaren Automotive, who build the McLaren F1 and the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. During 2010 and 2011, the McLaren technology centre received a £50million extension.
Other employees often work in IT, FMCG and Engineering, and notable firms include Fidessa, Capgemini, Mouchel, Petrofac and John Wood.
Woking is also the home to a number of sports clubs and facilities. Woking Football Club is the main sports club in the town, and currently compete in the Conference National. There are also a further three football clubs in the borough- Knaphill F.C, Sheerwater F.C and Westfield F.C. There is also a hockey club and a number of cricket clubs.
Transport also plays a crucial role for the town, due to the reliance on facilities by commuters.
Woking railway station has 6 platforms, and provides a substantial 14 trains per hour to London Waterloo, as well as less frequent trains to areas such as Portsmouth, Basingstoke, Alton, Weymouth and Exeter.
Woking also has good access to London via the M25 London Orbital Motorway, as well as the M3 motorway and the A3.
There are also reliable bus and coach services, as well as the Basingstoke Canal, which passes through the town.
