Of course, first impressions count when you're buying a new home. Our handy homebuyer's checklist reminds you what else to look for when viewing a property, and it may even help with your bargaining position.
It can also highlight any work that needs to be done when you move in, and so avoid unexpected bills for emergency repairs.
Our checklist gives you practical advice on what to look for in the following key areas:
- central heating and radiators
- electrics and alarms
- windows and doors
- household pests
- roof and loft
Be prepared for household emergencies
