2 [Edition datE] Four things you MUST do before buying a home Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated legal process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where there is a lot of competition for a limited number of properties. It might be tempting to take a few shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later. Here are our top four tasks for home buyers. 1. Research the property The real estate agent selling the property acts on behalf of the seller, however they are also required to tell you everything they know about the property. They must respond professionally to all your enquiries and not withhold any details. Remember that you still need to do your own due diligence. That means getting a title search so you can find out all the facts about the property’s ownership, boundary and access, as held by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ). It’s a good idea to get a Land Information Memorandum (LIM), which shows information held by the local council about the property and land. For valuable feedback on the property’s condition, get a report done by an inspector who has professional indemnity insurance and carries out their work in accordance with the New Zealand Property Inspection Standard. Although this all costs money, it will save you more in the long term. Sellers may occasionally provide some of this information for you. If this happens, check that it is up-to-date. 2. Get legal advice Buying property is expensive, and it can cost even more if something goes wrong. That’s why it’s important to get legal advice before you sign anything. A lawyer will handle all the paperwork involved in the process, including the title search, and offer impartial advice. If you don’t have a lawyer, the New Zealand Law Society can help you find one at nz. 3. Understand the sale process There are several methods of buying and selling property, for example, tender or auction. It’s important to understand the process for the property you are buying. Practices can vary between agencies so make sure you confirm details with them. The Home Buyer’s Guide at buyingahome. has more helpful advice. 3 4. Read the sale and purchase agreement and understand what it means The sale and purchase agreement is your contract with the seller. It is crucial to read it very carefully and get legal advice before you sign. You can negotiate the terms and conditions of an agreement, but once you sign it, there’s no going back.
