I am planning to buy a new home with my husband. We’ve been looking at what is available to us, such as which properties are within our budget and within our desired area, and we have narrowed it down to a few really good options. The main problem is that the housing market is very competitive at the moment, and I am personally concerned about my rights as a buyer.
I want to hire someone who specialises in property conveyancing to ensure the property transaction goes smoothly. One of the houses we want to buy and are looking at is this beautiful modern townhouse that is close to schools and parks and has the perfect floor plan for both our wants and our needs. It’s also within our budget, which means at auction there isn’t going to be anybody who can compete with us.
I was the one who really wanted this house, and my husband was happy to oblige. We have the same tastes in architecture and interior design, which is really great because it means that most of the time we both like the same thing. He didn’t have to make any compromises when choosing this house with me. The only thing that he is not keen on is conveyancing. Bentleigh has a lot of reputable firms, but he thinks he’ll be able to do it all himself without any help from a specialist lawyer. I think it’s better to leave it up to the professionals to ensure we receive the best possible deal when buying the house, and also to ensure the transition goes smoothly. It is important for me that our rights as consumers are upheld, as I am aware that sometimes people can take advantage of home buyers, especially when they’re in a position that involves looking for a new house for their family.
Buying a house is often a stressful time, and I think hiring a conveyancer would take a lot of that stress out and let us focus on things like interior design and unpacking our things.
