Before you get really serious about buying a property it’s a good idea to get a home loan.

Pre-Approval:

Remember that your loan will not be fully approved until you have a property to purchase. So firstly, you can provide most of the paperwork including identification, payslips, and evidence of your debts and assets. The lender will also check your credit history and make sure your financial information is genuine.

Pest and Building Inspection:

So once you have got your loan organized and you have found a great property Don’t sign anything yet. You need professionals to inspect the building. Pest and building inspection will let you know about any nasty surprises, such as a termite infestation or a structural problem with the building.

After all, buying a home without one of these inspections is like buying a car without taking it for a test drive.  But with far worse consequences, For example; one has that you are keen on buying riddled with termites while another place you looked at had dodgy foundations, none of which would have been obvious to our untrained eyes.

So if you are happy with the quality of the property and you are ready to go, it's time to buy.

Contracts and Settlement:

The last step is to exchange contracts and complete settlements. There is where you need a conveyancer. So what is a conveyance? Their job is to make sure the property contract is legal and correct.
