Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Worcester?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Worcester, 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 Worcester or perhaps not even in Worcestershire.
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 Worcester - 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 Worcester
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 Worcester.
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 Worcester
Worcester is a city and the county town of Worcestershire in the West Midlands of England. Worcester is situated some 17 miles (27 km) southwest of the southern suburbs of Birmingham and 23 miles (37 km) north of Gloucester, and has an approximate population of 100,000 people.
Conveniently located next to the M5 motorway which runs north-south immediately to the east of the City, it can be accessed via Junction 6 (Worcester North) and Junction 7 (Worcester South). This makes the city easily accessible by car to most parts of the country, including London which is only 120 miles (190 km) away (via the M5, M42 and M40).
For rail travel Worcester is serviced by two stations; Worcester Foregate Street and Worcester Shrub Hill.
The Foregate Street station is located in the city centre, on Foregate Street. Its trains run to and from Birmingham and also serves the Cotswold line, which Worcester Shrub Hill also serves.
Bus services are run from the terminus at Crowngate Bus Station in the city centre and interchange for many bus services.
Worcester's nearest major airport is Birmingham International which is accessible by road and rail.
Worcester is home to the University of Worcester and from 2005 to 2010 it was the fastest growing university in the UK, more than doubling its student population. The city is also home to two colleges, Worcester Sixth Form College and heart of Worcestshire College.
The high schools located in the city are Bishop Perowne CofE, Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College, Christoper Whitehead language College and Tudor Grange Academy as well as Nunnery Wood High School. New College Worcester caters for blind or partially sighted students from the ages of 11 to 18.
Worcester was the site of the Battle of Worcester (3 September 1651), when Charles II attempted to forcefully regain the crown, in the fields a little to the west and south of the city, near the village of Powick. However, Charles II was defeated and returned to his headquarters in what is now known as King Charles house in the Cornmarket, before fleeing in disguise to Shropshire from where he eventually escaped to France. Worcester was one of the cities loyal to the King in that war, for which it was given the epithet "Fidelis Civitas" ("The Faithful City"). This motto has been incorporated into the city's coat of arms.
