Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Wolverhampton?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Wolverhampton, 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 Wolverhampton 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 Wolverhampton - 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 Wolverhampton
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 Wolverhampton.
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 Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton is a city located in the West Midlands with a population of 249,470, according to the 2011 census.
The town grew originally as a result of its market trade, however during the Industrial Revolution the city became an industrial centre, especially through its coal, limestone and iron ore mining as well as its steel production. On top of this was its motor works, including the vehicle to break the land speed record, at over 200mph.
Nowadays Wolverhampton's industry revolves around engineering, especially including its aerospace industry, as well as a large proportion in the service sector. 32.8% of the total employed population currently work in public administration, education and health, whilst 21.1% work in distribution, hotels and restaurants, and 12.7% work in finance and IT.
In terms of individual employers, Wolverhampton City Council is the largest, employing over 12,000 staff. Aside from this, other substantial employers include Jaguar Land Rover, Chubb Locks, Tarmac, Marston's brewery and the University of Wolverhampton.
Retail is also making a significant comeback to the city, with numerous regeneration plans having gone underway. The most notable of these is the Summer Row project, however due to the 2008 recession the development has been postponed. Despite this, many of the companies originally set to be a part of Summer Row, such as Debenhams, have carried out independent completion of individual stores.
Other revenue also comes from the city's cultural attractions. Molineux Stadium, the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, has a capacity of over 30,000 and can therefore accommodate many visitors. When it is not being used as a football ground it can be used as a venue for other events, such as in 2003 when it accommodated a Bon Jovi concert.
The Grand Theatre on Lichfield Street is the largest theatre in the city, and was first opened in 1894. It has a capacity of just over 1,200, and has been visited by the likes of David Lloyd George, Charlie Chaplin and Sean Connery.
Wolverhampton's vicinity also hosts one of the country's few living museums, the Black Country Living Museum, which consists of an array of artefacts and exhibitions displaying the history of the Black Country.
In terms of transport, there are four motorways located within 7 miles of the city centre. These include the M6, which connects the city with the north-west of England, such as Manchester and Liverpool, as well as Scotland. The M5 opened in 1970, and links the city with the south-west of England, as well as London via the M40.
Wolverhampton railway station, which is located on the West Coast Main Line, provides connections to numerous stations around the country. There is an hourly service to London Euston, via Birmingham New Street, as well as an hourly service to Scotland (either Glasgow or Edinburgh). More frequent services include Birmingham New Street, Liverpool Lime Street, Shrewsbury, Manchester and Holyhead.
On top of this there is a state of the art metro service connecting Wolverhampton to areas such as West Bromwich and Birmingham Show Hill.
