Check the Local Area, Judging the Place and Getting Second Opinion when Viewing Property in Edinburgh

By KateForbes Subscribe to RSS | February 15th 2012 | Views:

When looking for a house you must take all steps to ensure that what you pick is nothing less than a gem. You should not compromise when deciding which property to buy. Also you must never go for a property which has a great outlook. Most people ignore the important aspects like security standards and safety issues and instead decide to rent it just because the place has an aesthetic appeal. This is not enough.

There are several factors which you must take into consideration before viewing the property and during its viewing in order to go forth with the purchase.

Second opinion when viewing

When you go for a property viewing you should try to take someone (a friend or colleague) with you. This is for all the people; those living in Edinburgh since quite some time and those who just moved to the city. It is more important for people who just arrived in the city, as they will not be able to understand all the terms and phrases that might come up in the conversation. This will provide you with an extra pair of eyes to analyze the place and a valuable second opinion.

Judge the place

When going for a viewing you should never rush through the stage. You should take your time and analyze the place as this is your only opportunity to judge whether the place is suitable for you. You must ask all the questions that come to your mind regarding the property. You should be prepared when going for a viewing. Drawing up a checklist before going is always a good idea.

Viewing the property means that you will be buying it the way you see it and so the landlord or letting agent will not be under any obligation to change once an agreement is signed.

Hence if you don’t bother checking the water pressure or the wiring during this stage, then there won’t be much you will be able to do once the agreement is signed.

Local area

You should look around to see the local vibe and see the neighborhood. See if the area is secure enough and well populated so that you don’t feel isolated and vulnerable. You must also see if the bus station, banks, public transport and local shops are nearby. Also consider the parking space.

These are the important factors one must consider before signing the agreement.
