Central London estate agent; such an agent will be responsible for taking you around properties and extolling their virtues. As you stand at the doorway, about to view the property, remember to keep calm and remain sensible. Bring a checklist of criteria and requirements with you to your viewing.
As you enter and walk around the property, remembering to ask the following questions can save yourself time, money and trouble in the future. Start by asking the estate agents London based that are handling the viewing and sale, why the current owners are selling? Is there an issue with either the location or the property itself? Inside the property start by asking whether it will need updating. Will any work needed be serious, or is it more cosmetic? If serious, should you get an estimate for this early on? Is the property listed or in a conservation area, restricting any alterations? Are the rooms large enough to meet your needs and furniture? What is included in the sale, such as any white goods? Central London estate agents should also be able to tell you the property running costs such as council tax, estimated mortgage repayments and energy costs. If asking these, and other questions, you still feel that the property has potential, you should organise a second viewing. See how it feels going back a second time. It is a good idea to take a friend with you whose opinion you value. If you have one who is more experienced in buying property and what to look out for, all the better.
