Buying and Selling a Home For Dummies
No-one obsesses over property quite like the British, even though buying and selling a home can be a personal headache and a financial lucky-dip. British newspapers groan under the weight of property supplements; TV reports constantly track house prices; young people fret about getting on the property ladder, while established homeowners worry about how to increase the value of their home or the market crashing. Buying a property is rarely straightforward and can be very time-consuming. There are numerous choices to make, from the style of building and location, to proximity to schools and other amenities. Most of all, there are plenty of opportunities to make the wrong decisions. Selling your home is also fraught with stress; from deciding to move and evaluating your property’s worth to finding an estate agent and putting your home on the market, every step comes with it’s own difficulties. Plus the advent of the Home Information Packs has also created a new headache for potential vendors. Buying and Selling a Home For Dummies, 2nd Edition covers everything from finding a property and getting a mortgage to preparing your home for sale and moving on. It is also one of the few guides to cover England, Wales and Northern Ireland as separate entitles from Scotland, and to cover the Scottish property market. This updated guide also contains coverage of HIPS (Home Information Packs), which were made compulsory in September 2007 and apply to all properties with three or more bedrooms.
