The solicitor who helped my last purchase has quoted £1350 for freehold conveyancing in Aberbargoed. I’m selling a newly refurbished property for £275,000. Are the quoted fees excessive? Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Aberbargoed?

Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would seriously advise in the strongest possible terms that your lawyer conducts them. Where timings and driving down costs are primary issues you should consider with your lawyer about the options such as contingency insurance available to you
