Buying a home is likely to be the biggest purchase you will make, but often we don’t ask enough questions or check carefully before we make that commitment. Taking the time to research the following things can save you a very costly mistake:

Check the Neighbourhood & House Moving Companies Knaresborough

No matter how well presented the property looks; the location will have a far greater influence on the price and saleability than anything else. It’s easy to improve a property but the bottom line is it can’t be moved somewhere else! Take time to walk around the area at different times of the day and night, visit the local pubs and parks. Check to see if there is a local Neighbourhood Watch scheme in the area. Look at one of the many crime mapping websites to see how many burglaries and anti-social incidents have taken place. If you have children, look on school league tables to find how the local schools are preforming.

Arrange Viewings at Different Times & House Moving Companies Knaresborough

Any property you are serious about purchasing should be viewed a minimum of three times. Make sure that you do this at different times of the day, evening and at weekends. A house you view at 11.00am may be peaceful and quiet but after next doors children come home in the afternoon, you may realise just how thin the walls are. Likewise, the neighbour that practices his saxophone or plays garage music into the small hours may not be heard during the afternoon.

Make sure one viewing takes place in good daylight so you can see the outside condition of the property and get an idea of what remedial work will need to be done.

Take Photographs & House Moving Companies Knaresborough

Use your mobile phone to take photographs as a useful reference point. It’s polite to ask first, but most vendors will be happy if they think you are a serious buyer.

Ask Questions & House Moving Companies Knaresborough

Before proceeding with a purchase, ask as many questions as you can. Make a list before your viewing. Here are some top questions to ask:

* How many viewings have you had?
* Have you had any offers?
* How long has the property been on the market?
* Where are the vendors moving to and is there a chain?
* Why are they moving and are they really sure they want to sell?
* Have there been any disputes with the neighbours?
* When did the seller purchase the house?
* What is included in the sale? Curtains or carpets? Kitchen appliances?
* What is the council tax band?

Getting a Survey & House Moving Companies Knaresborough

It is essential that before you purchase your new home, you arrange a suitable survey. However, since these can be expensive, asking the following questions could save you a wasted fee:

* Have there been any subsidence problems?
* When was the property re-wired?
* How old is the boiler and when was it last serviced?
* Does the vendor hold any damp and woodworm treatment certificates?

You can also carry out some basic checks yourself:

* Look at the plumbing, turn on the taps to check the water pressure and flush the loo.

* Check the outside of the property, are there any cracks, rotten woodwork, is any hard standing breaching the damp-proof course?

* Take some binoculars and inspect the roof for missing tiles, broken guttering, faulty lead flashing etc.

* Look for any internal damp issues such as mould on walls, peeling wallpaper or excessive condensation.

* If the property has an attic, ask to take a look, this is one of the best ways of seeing the condition of the wooden timbers, if you can see daylight, you will know there are missing roof tiles.

* Check the security, are there adequate locks on doors and windows, is there a house alarm installed?

* Lastly, once inside the property, check the signal on your mobile phone!
