A loan offer from Nationwide for the remortgage of my 4 bedroom flat is due any day now. Can you suggest a cheap conveyancing practitioner in Ponthir?
This site is not designed to aid those in their quest for the lowest fares for conveyancing solicitors in Ponthir. We can offer you affordable conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest. Do not be seduced by organisations offering the bait of £100 conveyancing in Ponthir. At best, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst you will end up with a hefty uplift in extras and still not end up with the service expected.
Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Ponthir?
If you are buying a property in Ponthir your lawyer will request that you put them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Normally this is asked for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any down payment is payable against the sale price then this should be needed shortly prior to contracts are exchanged. The closing balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer shortly before completion.
I was pointed in your direction by a number of estate agents in Ponthir to find a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your site ahead of a competitor’s?
We don’t make any referral fee for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I need to instruct a conveyancing practitioner in Ponthir for my home move. Is it possible to review a solicitor's record with the profession’s regulator?

For details about the period before 1 January 2008, or to check a firm's history, ring 0870 606 2555, 08.00 - 18.00 any week day save for Tuesday when lines open at 9.30am.

We have just had a bid accepted on our first home in Ponthir, and are about to get solicitors lined up. We have used the different comparison tools and the fee estimates are from all over the the UK. Is it critical to have a Ponthir property lawyer local to your potential house? I am happy to do all the communicating electronically, but I guess at some point we may be required to attend the lawyer's office to sign papers?
The lawyer does not need to be in Ponthir, but opting for local means that you have the option to go in if needed, by way of example, if a signature is immediately necessary. In addition, a Ponthir solicitor is likely to be familiar with local agents and (if the vendor has instructed a local lawyer) with them, which will help smooth the process.
