Things we would recommend you check out before making that major commitment to purchase.

Personally, as I am going through the process of purchasing my first house, there are a few handy tips that I used to secure my thoughts on the property that I fell in love with.  After the viewing I  checked:

  1. Local Amenities – It’s useful to know exactly how far the nearest supermarket is. Knowing where your local doctors/dentist will be, it’s also useful to know where the local vet is. Mapping a picture of the local area and working out where places are, will allow you to see how accessible everything is.
  2. Council Tax – It may not have crossed your mind before now, but it is important in knowing how much it will cost you either monthly, by direct debit or yearly. Bills add up and with a mortgage payment too, it’s important to know what your outgoings will be.
  3. Internet Speed – This has become a high priority in recent times, if you work from home or just love the online world, it’s important to check what internet speed the property could achieve and the prices for it.
