Questions to ask when buying a house

  • Why is the owner selling the house?
  • How long has the property been up for sale?
  • Exactly what is included in the sale?

These are all questions you should be asking before finalising a mortgage on a house. You may be given information about the property that could sway your decision or allow you to buy at a lower price.

Talk to the neighbours and local community to find out about the area and any developments planned for the future.

Other questions could be:

  • What is the minimum price the seller will take?
  • What band of council tax does the property fall into?

Remember: Make sure to really ask everything that you think may affect your decision or your time living in the property. You are paying a lot of money, so you want to make sure you don’t get any unwanted surprises later on down the line.
