Finances – before you begin looking for a new house, make sure you can afford it.  Check that you can get a mortgage and that you have enough money for a deposit. 

View the property – don’t dismiss a property without seeing it in person. 

View several properties – the more homes you visit the better, give yourself plenty of time to make a decision. 

Get a survey – always pay extra for a homebuyer report or building survey, particularly if it’s an older property that you are buying. 

Consider extra costs – when buying a house take into account Mortgage Arrangement Fees, Solicitors Fees, Surveys etc.  Do you have enough money left over to cover your living expenses? 

Is the property Freehold or Leasehold – whilst a leasehold property may be cheaper, there may be charges attached.  Find out the length of the lease and how it will affect you getting a mortgage. 

Get to know the area - before you buy in an area, it’s a good idea to re-visit it several times to check out the neighbourhood, how close you will be to local shops, schools and more. 

Choose a Good Solicitor – choose a reputable solicitor who comes highly recommended.
