Howells has a conveyancing department in each of our six South Wales offices. Every year we complete the sale and purchase of thousands of residential properties both here in Wales and in England. Our experienced and multi-award winning conveyancing teams place us as one of the best in the UK.

Communicating with and working on behalf of buyers and sellers, meeting deadlines, liaising with estate agents, mortgage providers and government organisations to ensure our clients complete their transactions ensures that our conveyancing departments are always kept busy.

To maintain an efficient and effective conveyancing process, we employ legal assistants who work with solicitors and licenced conveyancers to work as a team of individuals cases.

Bethan Rees and Jerry Honeyball are two legal assistants based in our Cardiff office. They very kindly took some time out to talk to us about a day in the life of a legal assistant. More...
