auction West Wales property auction - advice pleaseHi, I have seen this detached house in Gorsgoch SA40 9TE on John Francis website for auction, and I have seen this house, my question is that I haven't bought a house in Wales before are there any different rules? I know they don't have stamp duty but have a cheaper land tax but apart from that are there any restrictions? The house has a new roof and plans for a loft conversion (2 extra beds and a bathroom). Any advice? Thanks JL https://www.johnfrancis.co.uk/pages/auction_property?lid=160083

Flat has no phone line - No way to route cable
warren_bath posted a topic in OtherHello all, I am preempting an issue arising here. I had the Sky Broadband technician come round today to connect a recently purchased flat up to the internet. It turns out there is no phone line to the property. He said he cannot go up the front of the building as there are no other cables on the exterior of the building, he is sure they will not be happy with it. He cannot run the cables along the communal hallway for the same reason. I was not comfortable with him using the communal hallway anyway as he showed me the route and walls he would have to drill though. (there are 27 flats in the block for reference) I tried to contact the freeholder on both his landline and mobile and there was no answer. The technician had to leave and I will book another appointment when the issue is resolved. I have since left the freeholder a voice message requesting a call back to discuss the matter with him. The technician did try to trace the line but he only found a very weak signal from the middle of a wall in the hallway of the flat. It would require serious guess work and a large amount of re-plastering and painting if I were to search for the cable. I was wondering if anyone had an experience with this, from either the freeholder or leaseholder side? I know the first step is to hear back from the freeholder. I just wonder what happens if he says no to the outside and inside route. It only leaves hacking at the wall. Is that my only option? It is certainly a cost I was not expecting. Many thanks in advance. Regards, Warren
