Costs When Buying A Property In Chatham
If you would like to purchase the right property in Chatham but unsure how much money you need then here’s everything you need to know. Whether your a first time buyer or an experienced home mover or investor, here’s an up to date guide on the costs to consider. Firstly, it would be a good idea to speak to your bank or a financial advisor to find out how much money you are able to borrow from the bank based on your salary and financial circumstances. Once you’ve established your purchase budget, you need to save a minimum of 5% of that budget as your deposit. (if you are looking to buy an investment you will need a minimum of a 20% deposit) You will also need to ensure you have the money saved to pay the stamp duty on the budget you have decided on.
The larger amount of deposit you have, the lower your mortgage will be, the lower the monthly payments will be and the less interest you will pay over the term of your mortgage.
Once you have had an offer accepted on a property to buy, you will need to instruct a solicitor to complete the legal work for you. Their costs can vary but a budget of £1000 approximately should be sufficient.
You may also wish to consider getting a survey on the property you are buying. A basic mortgage valuation is the lowest tier of survey. Costing around £200 approximately. A homebuyers survey gives you a more in depth analysis and a full structural survey is the highest level costing up to £1000 approximately.
