As someone with no idea as to conveyancing in Caldicot what’s the number one tip you can give me concerning the ownership transfer in Caldicot

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Caldicot and elsewhere in Monmouthshire is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, selling agent and even potentially a lender. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Caldicot is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the transaction whose responsibility is to look after your best interests and to protect you.

On occasion a third party with a vested interest may attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice. For example, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your lawyer is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may try to convince you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

I was advised by a couple of local property agents in Caldicot to choose a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to market your site over and above another?

We don’t make any referral fee for directing people to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I would like to let out my leasehold apartment in Caldicot. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

Notwithstanding that your previous Caldicot conveyancing lawyer is not around you can check your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the property. The rule is that if the deeds are silent, subletting is permitted. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to obtain permission from your landlord or other appropriate person prior to subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining permission. Such consent should not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If the lease prohibits you from subletting the property you should ask your landlord for their consent.
