My fiance’s dad is a conveyancing practitioner. I am hopeful that I'll be able to get friends and family rates for conveyancing, but if not, what level of figure should I be expecting for conveyancing in Pontcanna?

At what point does exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Pontcanna and do I need to attend the lawyers office?
Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Pontcanna you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Pontcanna)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I have been told that property searches are the main cause of delay in Pontcanna conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Pontcanna.
