Guildford is superbly located in the heart of the Surrey countryside, and its excellent local facilities plus quick and easy access to London makes it a popular choice for homebuyers. As prices are generally high in the district, Conveyancing in Guildford is best carried out by a Solicitor with local knowledge who can save you both money and time.
The town traces its history back to Saxon times, and is located in a gap in the North Downs where the River Wey breaks through the hills. There are many old buildings in Guildford, such as the Guildhall on the High Street with its famous clock overhanging the street. Guildford Cathedral is another major landmark; building works started in 1933 and was completed in 1961, making it one of the most modern cathedrals in the country.
The main campus of Surrey University is located nearby, and the College of Law, which provides legal education for aspiring solicitors and barristers, is based in Braboeuf Manor, Portsmouth Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU3 1HA.
First-class shopping combined with excellent leisure and entertainment renders Guildford an all-round place to live and work. For this reason it is one of the most expensive parts of the country outside the capital, with plenty of homes fetching in excess of £1m. Less expensive dwellings are available in the town as well, with one-bedroom flats and apartments starting from under £100, 000. High prices do not seem to deter buyers - demand is high and competition can be intense for some of the best homes especially those near the most popular schools.
Whatever the price, for most people buying a home is the most expensive purchase they will ever make, therefore it is important to instruct a Solicitor who is familiar with Conveyancing in Guildford and can arrange an early completion date for you.
