Residential Conveyancing

This has been Whittinghams principal work over many years. We have assisted tens of thousands of people in either selling or buying a property or re-mortgaging and most other matters connected with Land Law. The firm has two very experienced residential conveyancers in Michael Greenway in our Porthcawl office and Howard Jones in our Bridgend office. We also have very experienced executives and secretarial staff supporting the solicitors.

Whilst as a firm we have a good working relationship with most estate agents and financial advisers in the Borough, we are not reliant on any particular agents or financial advisers for introduction of work. Again, whilst we act for many people in buying a new build property from a builder, unlike some firms of solicitors we are not reliant on a particular builder insisting on clients using their preferred option. This means that we can maintain our independence which is important in advising our clients throughout the course of a particular transaction.

We appreciate that moving house can be a stressful time and we try to ensure that we maintain a good line of communication between ourselves and our clients. We appreciate that we need to be available to clients to deal with any queries and concerns throughout a transaction and aim to return calls as quickly as possible if we are unavailable initially.  We provide detailed reports to clients on documents within the conveyancing transaction and explain everything in  non legalistic terms.  We always like to see our clients at the office to sign the Contract and Mortgage documentation rather than sending these by post, as it is important to discuss not only the paperwork in hand but connected matters such as joint ownership, and Wills.

If you are selling or buying a house please feel free to telephone us for a quotation. The fee we quote for a conveyancing transaction will be the fee we charge, unless the matter becomes protracted, when we will advise you of this and advise you of any additional costs. There are no hidden extras in our quotations.  Some firms of solicitors will give a lower quote with regard to the cost of the conveyancing, but then quote additional fees for checking your identity, completing Stamp Duty Land Tax forms or for work connected with the mortgage.  These items are a core part of the conveyancing process and are included in the work we do for the price we quote.

Whittinghams are pleased to announce that they have achieved the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme accreditation and was one of the first frims in Bridgend County Borough to achieve this.

As part of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme we have to send out satisfaction questionnaires to clients at the end of a transaction.  These are some of the comments we have received.
 
“We would just like to thank you for your prompt and professional services when dealing with our house purchase.  You exceeded our expectations with how quickly everything was done and we would have no hesitation in recommending you.”
 
“We must thank you for all the hard work and efforts involved in the completion of the house.  Excellent service, friendly and caring.”
 
“Thank you so much for everything you have done in getting me in before Christmas and I would highly recommend you to anyone.”
