This week has been one of particular interest because I met someone who has actually purchased, and now taken possession of, a substantial property, all done over the internet.

No physical inspection; they relied on the agent’s comments and the marketing material comprising photographs and plans of the property.

It is only when you take possession of a property you fully appreciate what you have actually got for your money.

Your viewing prior to a commitment to purchase will have shown you whether the property will suit your family and its needs and a building inspection will tell you if the property is sound but it is only when you are living there the soundness of your choice will be confirmed.
