Buyers information guide

For most people buying a property - the biggest ongoing cost is the mortgage - simply a loan secured against a property. You can't sell the property without paying off the mortgage first and if you don't keep up the repayments the lender can repossess the property. Due to the recession and the volatile behaviour of markets, it is vital that you secure a mortgage with a lender before starting the home buying and search process. This way, when you find the right property, you will avoid being beaten to it by another buyer and you will also be in a much stronger negotiating position.

Finding the ideal property

Tell your agent exactly what type of property you are looking for and the elements that you could possibly compromise on. Also inform them what you don't want and whether you have a mortgage agreed in principle.

You will need to consider what aspects of a property are most important to you:

  • number of bedrooms / bathrooms
  • parking provisions
  • separate kitchen and dining room
  • private garden
  • conservatory
  • how much time/money you may want to spend redecorating etc.

You may want to consider buying a new build; which are growing in popularity and offer many benefits to home buyers.
