Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Cardiff?

In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Cardiff, and all documents would be hand-produced and posted or delivered by hand.

That service came at a price, but the truth is that it is no longer needed. With modern technology such as scanning, emailing and even Skype or Facetime video calls there is no need to use your local solicitor. Your conveyancer can be based anywhere and still provide a great service - even if he or she is in an office many miles away from Cardiff or perhaps not even in South Glamorgan.

We have successfully dealt with thousands of conveyancing transactions all over the country, even with clients from the other side of the world. It is not unknown for us to talk to clients outside the UK using Skype, and once we had clients in Thailand talking to us through an interpreter in New Zealand!

There will be no need for you to visit our offices or hand deliver documents. You need never leave Cardiff - our conveyancers will talk you through the process via phone and email, and everything works just as smoothly as it would if we were just down the road.

Cardiff Conveyancing

Online Conveyancing in Cardiff

There isn't really any such thing as online conveyancing. Clients come to us for conveyancing in Cardiff, Adamsdown, Tredegarville and all sorts of other places, having first found us via our website.

After that, the relationship between you and your conveyancer is the same as any other. We have the same professional obligations towards you, and deal with your conveyancing file in the same way.

It might feel like online conveyancing because you can talk to us through email on your computer, but really it is proper conveyancing.

Whether you're moving to Cardiff or away from Cardiff to somewhere else, our conveyancing team can help you do so with the minimum of fuss and inconvenience.

Fees for conveyancing in Cardiff

Our fees are transparent and, so long as the situation does not change (for example so long as your property doesn't turn out to be leasehold when we thought it was freehold) the fee we quote is the fee you will be charged.

We don't add extras on for things like photocopying, postage, or the like. Those are our overheads and we don't pass them on to you.

All our conveyancing fees are dependent on the nature and value of the transaction, so we naturally charge a bit more for more complicated and high value work. However, the fee charged will be the same for a customer in Newcastle as it would be for someone in London, or indeed in Cardiff.

There are some aspects of our conveyancing fees which we can't change. Fees charged by other bodies such as HM Land Registry, or by HMRC for Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) are out of our control.

Introduction to Cardiff

Cardiff is both the largest city and capital of Wales. It is also the tenth largest city in the United Kingdom, and has a population of 346,100.

The city is by far the country's economic hub, as well as being a hotspot for much of the sporting and cultural activities. For instance, the Millennium Stadium is the national ground for the Wales rugby union team, the SWALEC stadium is the home ground of Glamorgan County Cricket Club and Cardiff City Stadium is the ground of the Football Club of the same name.

Whilst the city contains only 10% of the Welsh population, the city generates 20% of Welsh GDP. The Cardiff Docks play an important role in this through importation and exportation of cargo, however there are many businesses such as Zurich, ING Direct and SWALEC Energy who also contribute to the economy to a substantial scale.

In 2010, Cardiff received 18.3 million visitors which in turn generated £852 million to the city's economy.
Many may visit the city for a number of reasons, possibly to visit one of the many sports grounds mentioned above, or even to visit one of the cities more historic landmarks, including many of the renown castles, such as Cardiff Castle, St Fagan's Castle or Castle Coch. In terms of culture, Cardiff was a finalist during the European Capital of Culture contest in 2008, and hosts many events such as The Great British Cheese Festival and Sparks in the Park, an annual non-profit fireworks display.

In terms of transport, Cardiff acts as the heart of most forms of transport throughout Wales. Cardiff Central is the largest railway station in the Wales and provides long distance services such as across Wales, but also to other areas in the UK such as Glasgow, London and Manchester. There is also a smaller rail service which provides services within Cardiff, known as Valley Lines. Cardiff airport also provides international and domestic flights.
