Property in Cardiff
Cardiff is the largest city in Wales, and is also the constituent country’s capital. With a population of about 350,000 Cardiff is amongst the largest cities in the UK. The city also functions as the main economic centre for Wales.
In the past few decades the city has been leaving behind its historical economic functions of trade and shipping and has focused, much like many other UK cities, on the financial and business service industry. This has allowed the city to grow economically, and to provide employment for more people than ever. As one would expect, a rise in the numbers of employees means changes in the property market. Recent statistics show that 40% of Cardiff employees live outside of Cardiff and commute into the city.
If you are interested in relocating to south Wales and working in Cardiff, conveyancing professionals will probably be able to help you, as would estate agents. Depending on your circumstances, you may consider living outside of the city itself. An estate agent is likely to know the local villages, and a Cardiff conveyancing professional will be able to ensure that the property is right for you. When buying your property in Cardiff, conveyancing professionals must check that you are aware of all the restrictions that come with the property, that the rights attached to the property are adequate for your needs and that you are receiving a property with good title (where there is no uncertainty or disputes regarding the ownership of the land). It is now also a requirement to register any sale of a property, and if the property is not registered, to register the property itself.
