- Lawyers/conveyancing fees It is a good idea to have a property lawyer look over the contract of sale and mortgage documents before signing a sale agreement. A lawyer can also assist with conveyancing, the process of transferring titles. Fees vary.
- Building and pest inspections As mentioned earlier, it’s definitely worth investing in a one-off building and pest inspection before signing a contract or as part of a condition of sale to ensure your potential home is structurally sound and pest free.
- Home and contents insurance Remember that home insurance is an essential part of the home-buying process. Insuring your home is something that needs to be organised and ready to take effect as soon as you settle on your property, not necessarily the date you move in. So make sure you have looked at your options and chosen the premium that best suits your needs and budget.
