Whether you’re a first time buyer or further along the property ladder, going out and viewing properties is a crucial step. You’ve browsed properties for sale and have decided on a shortlist to visit. The viewings are in your diary, but what’s next? Here’s our advice to make the most of your viewing.

The next step is to consider which questions to ask the agent or the homeowner selling the property. We recommend that you make a list before your viewing, but do ask whatever is important to you.

15 questions to ask when viewing a property:

  1. How long have the vendors lived there?
  2. Why are they moving house?
  3. Do they need to move quickly?
  4. Have they found another property to move to?
  5. Are any fixtures included?
  6. How long has the property been on the market?
  7. Have they had any offers?
  8. What are the typical household bills?
  9. What is the local area like?
  10. What is the parking situation?
  11. What are the neighbours like?
  12. Is the property freehold or leasehold?
  13. Which way does the property face?
  14. Is the property listed, or in a conservation area?
  15. How old is the property?

Don’t forget, the vendor has a duty to tell the truth about neighbours and the area. All these questions will help if you decide to make an offer of your own.
