Hire a Legal Professional
A legal professional is there to represent your interests and to process the legal documentation required. Your Royal LePage Real Estate Professional can provide you with the names of legal professionals who specialize in real estate.
The legal process differs from province to province. Your Royal LePage Real Estate Professional or legal professional will advise you on the steps to be taken before the keys to your new home are presented to you.
Have the Home Inspected (Optional)
Buying a home is one of the most important investment decisions you will make in your lifetime. As such, it makes sound financial sense to enlist the services of a qualified home inspection company to ensure your home is as solid and secure on the inside as it is on the outside.
A home inspection will determine the structural and mechanical soundness of your home. Your home inspector will identify existing and potential problem areas, suggest practical low-cost solutions, and provide estimates regarding costs for any work required. Shortly after the inspection has taken place, a report summarizing the findings is generally provided to the potential purchaser.
By commissioning a home inspection prior to purchase, you’re protecting both yourself and your investment, as well as buying a little peace-of-mind.
Home inspection costs often range according to size, age, and location of the home. Your Royal LePage sales representative can recommend a reputable home inspection service or arrange for a home inspector to visit your property.
