Buying a property


Buying a home is one of the most stressful yet rewarding things you will ever do. It’s vital that you seek legal advice from a specialist experienced in property law and who knows the area and local laws applicable to the area.

Generally the first decision you will need to make is in regard to finance. Make sure you source a reputable bank or broker and make sure you take time to read everything thoroughly, from the pre-contractual statement which outlines the fees and charges to which you’ll be subjected to; to the actual mortgage contract itself. Remember you are entitled to legal advice at any time and are under no obligation to sign anything unless you are completely happy.

Prior to making an offer:

Once you have found a property you like, you may like to arrange a pre-purchase building inspection report and perhaps a pest inspection report. These are written reports about the condition of the property that may avoid or outline any potentially costly problems. If you require a reputable inspector we are happy to recommend people that we use on a day to day basis.
