What do conveyancing solicitors do?

A conveyancer plays a pivotal role in a purchase. They will raise questions for the seller's solicitor, order searches, review the lease (if applicable) and complete any post-sale actions, such as registering the property ownership with the Land Registry and paying Land Transaction Tax.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Abertillery conveyancing solicitors would also undertake coal mining searches due to the area's history of coal mining.

Purchasing a home with a mortgage?

During the process of buying a house, your solicitor also has to take care of legal matters for the mortgage lender. If your conveyancer isn't accepted on your mortgage provider's panel, it may take many weeks longer to complete the purchase.

We work with conveyancers who can represent the vast majority of banks and building societies, such as HSBC, Lendinvest and Skipton Building Society - helping to ensure your transaction completes faster.

What are typical Abertillery conveyancing fees?

Getting a conveyancing quote takes moments - but understanding what is and isn't included in the quote can be challenging.

Conveyancing solicitors fees

Your solicitor's quote will set out the legal fees (inc. VAT) that you pay when the property transaction is complete. These fees are what your solicitor or conveyancer charges you for the legal services they provide during your property transaction.


The conveyancing quote should also include any disbursements, which are third-party costs, including Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), HM Land Registry fees and property searches.

Is it a fixed fee quote?

Some firms list extra charges in the small print. This can mean a higher-than-expected final bill. Make sure you question any charges not set out in your initial quote, when comparing quotes.
