Before you start house hunting, you need to know what you want. Buying a house is a long-term commitment, so it’s really important that you think of the future as well. You may be able to get Borrower’s Loan Insurance.
Loan insurance could mean your loan gets repaid if you die. If you can’t work because of illness or injury, your loan repayments could be paid for you for up to two years. Make sure you read the insurance policy carefully and check it with your lawyer before you sign.
You may want to get the home checked by a suitably qualified and registered building surveyor before you go any further. Make sure you ask for an intrusive property inspection. We reveal any repair and maintenance work that may be needed and how much it could cost. For moving into new house we hire a van, to do the moving for you.
You can get insurance to cover you in case anything is damaged while it is being moved from your old house to your new home. You may need to pay bonds and fees for connections to power, phone and gas. You could check the real estate section of the newspaper. These include private sales and open homes.
