We provide the experience and technology of a large firm with the friendliness & flexibility more often associated with a high street practice.

 

Moving house is one of the biggest decisions any of us can make and it can be stressful. Alongside this, today’s property market is constantly changing - as well as our clients’ needs.

We offer a comprehensive residential conveyancing service. This also includes re-mortgage work and transfers of equity in connection with divorce settlements and family arrangements. Where possible, we use a company to undertake Searches of the Local Authority to ensure that disbursements are kept to a minimum and that the results are returned promptly.

“Continuously helpful and diligent”

G and A J, Radyr

"I write to express my thanks to Nicola Penny on the recent conveyancing she carried out on the occasion of our moving house. Throughout the fourteen weeks or so the move took to reach completion she was continuously helpful and diligent. At times the chain was particularly strained; misinformation from other parties in the chain being commonplace. During these periods of doubt she was able to offer sound advice and assistance which greatly reduced the stress to my wife and I.

Should I have cause to use or recommend the services of a solicitor in the future I would have no hesitation in selecting your practice."

“Thank you for all your help throughout the sale and purchase of our properties”

J and B M, Bridgend

"May we take this opportunity to thank you for all your help throughout the sale and purchase of our properties. We really appreciated the excellent, professional service you have given us. We do not intend moving again in the near future but we would not hesitate to use your company again if we did!"

 

“It is a pleasure to be your client”

S and C M, Cwmbran

"Miss Penny is a credit to your firm, her attitude is very customer care orientated and she also has excellent attention to detail. Because of my experiences I have been recommending your services to others as a direct result of the professionalism shown. It is a pleasure to be your client."

“I will certainly be continuing to recommend you to others”

J S, Usk

"Just a quick note to say thank you very much for effecting the sale so smoothly. I will certainly be continuing to recommend you to others."
