Assessing the property’s value
Be aware that you will normally buy the property in the same condition you see it in at the showing. After the buying contract is signed you will no longer have the opportunity to report defects and damages. It is always the responsibility of the buyer the assess the state and value of the property, including floors, roof, facade and potential water damages. Make sure you are informed about possible limitations in regard to construction work on the building, for example a preservation order, as well as inherited liabilities and the energy label. Especially when it comes to second-hand properties, it is advisable to hire an expert to assess their value and ask him to issue, for example, an official report. A qualified reviewer knows exactly what to look for and will see if there are any faults. Thereby, you can also avoid paying an exaggerated price for the property.
