We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Monmouth conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers.

I own a semi-detached Edwardian house in Monmouth. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and The Mortgage Works. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking The Mortgage Works to clarify?

You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
