We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent has warned us that the vendor will only move forward if we use their chosen conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Ystalyfera
We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Ystalyfera conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing targets demanded by head office.
I wish to let out my leasehold flat in Ystalyfera. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Your lease dictates relations between the freeholder and you the flat owner; specifically, it will set out if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Ystalyfera do not contain strict prohibition on subletting – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the property. In most cases there is simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the sublease.
