Thinking of moving house? The house market is feeling the effects of the recession as more and more people are unable to move meaning less properties for you to choose from. A report recently suggests building more houses may just kick start the economy and house market.

Value for Money

If you’re in the position where nothing you’ve seen tickles your fancy but you still crave a bargain, have you thought of restoring a property? Restoring a property varies in scale from needing updating to huge conversions of derelict buildings; it really depends how difficult you want your project to be. When buying a house you should seek legal advice to avoid any mishaps. Here are three things to consider to make sure the journey is as smooth as can possibly be. Image Credit

House Survey

Getting a house survey is important when buying any property, but it’s especially important when buying a property that has seen better days. There’s bound to be problems here and there which will be the main reason why you’re getting such a good price. But knowing beforehand just what exactly needs to be done will let you judge the risk/reward of taking on the property. This will also help you judge the costs as they could soon add up.

Planning

As Winston Churchill once said ‘He who fails to plan is planning to fail’. This is very apt for restoring a home. You need to have a clear idea of what and how you’re going to restore a property. Whether it’s a lick of paint and new carpets or demolishing and erecting new structures, you should know exactly what is going to be done. If you’re planning something big like new rooms, it’s worth consulting a builder or architect to get professional help and advice as to what can and can’t be done. Image Credit

Building Permission

If you’re thinking of building an extension, you’ll need permission to build. Your neighbours may have objections to your plans which they can oppose. Even if you have already built your extension to find out your neighbours aren’t happy, you will still have to remove it. It seems harsh but this is why it’s vital you take the necessary measures before going ahead with any extension plans. Image Credit

While this seems like a lot of work before even having the key in your hand, they’re vital steps that can avoid any headaches and heartaches in the future. If you want to attain a good deal and get the most for your money, restoring a house is the most suitable action.
