There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Cardiff but how do I know who I should use?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest Cardiff conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors.

It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
