If I’m renting out rooms in my house, do I need to appoint a solicitor?
No, you don’t, because there is no legal imperative for you to do so. However, it’s not as straightforward as simply leasing out a room to a renter because there are certain provisions that must be met in order to protect you as the renter and the person renting the room.
This depends on the room and where it is in the property, state of the plumbing, insurance, and a number of other factors. You’ll also need to draw up a tenancy agreement to ensure demarcation and rights for both parties. While you won’t necessarily need a solicitor involved, it’s worth contacting a letting agency who will have the experience and knowledge to ensure you have everything in place. Be aware that any advice you seek from professionals may come with a fee, so it would be worth shopping around first.
How long should it take my assigned lawyer to accomplish the legal process for an apartment in a period property we are intending to purchase in Brecon?
The conveyancing process can take anywhere between one month and 3 months based on any number of factors like the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the time taken to get a mortgage offer. Our conveyancers are highly focused on pushing transactions through you moving home as promptly as we possibly can.
We have requested a quote from you. Could there be any extra fees?
No. Our solicitors do not hide any extra, hidden charges for your legal work. You should be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.
Is it hard to sell a property located in a conservation area?
A conservation area is designated and managed by the local authority to ensure the unique nature of the location is maintained by placing restrictions on changes to the buildings, street furniture and green spaces to protect the architectural or historical interest of everything within the conservation area boundary.
Because of this resistance to change, this usually means homes in conservation areas are more attractive to buyers, and, as such, there may be a premium to pay over properties outside such areas. Because of the attraction of such property, they will usually sell well and quickly. However, there will need to be greater checks by the buyer’s solicitor to verify that your property conforms to the conservation area restrictions, which may add extra time to the duration of the conveyancing.
