Before signing a contract, it can help to talk to a conveyancing lawyer (solicitor) who will discuss your needs and concerns with you. What drew you to the property? Is it that you can dig a pool for the children or build a shed for the big boys’ toys? IF you have something specific in mind, it may be a good idea to undertake some research to ensure you can bring your dream to life.
Ensuring that your contact is conditional upon you obtaining finance, a satisfactory building and pest report (to check for any deficiencies and termites) and any other searches is important and it is just as important that you comply with any dates of the contract to prevent the seller pulling out of the contract.
