Why don't you need a conveyancer based in Monmouthshire?
In the old days you used your local solicitor. You would visit their office in the centre of Monmouthshire, 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 Monmouthshire or perhaps not even in Monmouthshire.
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 Monmouthshire - 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.

Fees for conveyancing in Monmouthshire
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 Monmouthshire.
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 Monmouthshire
Monmouthshire is a county in south east Wales, on the border between England and Wales. According to the 2011 census, the county has a population of 91,300, and much of this can be found in the main towns of Abergavenny, Caldicot, Chepstow and Monmouth, which all have populations over 10,000.
These large towns also act as the economic hubs for the county. For instance, Chepstow developed due to it coastal location as a port and trading centre, and whilst this has virtually ceased, it still has a significant service and tourism industry. The town centre of Chepstow also has over 130 shops, and there are also a number of traditional bars, pubs, and restaurants.
Other residents of Monmouthshire may also commute to the larger nearby areas of South Wales and Bristol.
Other sources of tourism in the county include the array of attractions Monmouthshire maintains, such as the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons National Park, and the various castles which can be found in the towns, such as Abergavenny Castle, Raglan Castle and Chepstow Castle.
The larger towns also provide the focal travel facilities in the town. For instance, Chepstow railway station provides relatively frequent services to the likes of Cardiff Central, Cheltenham Spa and Nottingham, and Caldicot railway station is on the same line and subsequently provides similar services.
Caldicot is also located just off the M4/M48 corridor, which therefore connects the town with many places elsewhere, such as Newport, Bristol and London.
