You might hear a lot of unfamiliar words when selling or buying a property, especially if it's for the first time. Thanks to our handy glossary you can brush up on the jargon and hold your own the next time a solicitor or estate agent lays on the gobbledygook, instead of staring like a rabbit in the headlights.

House survey

Survey it Yourself

When you've found a promising property that you're interested in purchasing you may want to get a survey done to lower the risk of being landed with a duffer and ending up with a terminally empty wallet. Whilst the mortgage lender will perform a survey before they will lend you any money, it is normally very cursory: sometimes they only drive past to make sure the house is there! They may charge you separately for this or it may be rolled up in the deal somewhere, but don’t mistake it for a structural survey that ascertains whether the property is free from defects.

Property Buying Process

There are a series of steps to be carried out and this article is to inform you about them and suggest actions you can take during the process to be more of a part of it and perhaps save yourself from making a bad decision.
