10 Steps to Buying a Home – # 7 & 8

January 7, 2010

Number 7 – Get property insurance.

Apart from the mortgage, you’ll need to purchase property insurance that protects your home against fire and other damages. Once you have a policy in place, forward a copy to your lawyer and your lender.

Number 8 – Check the legal details.

With the deal finalized and the financing in place, your lawyer can now search the title and check whether there are any unpaid property taxes outstanding. Your lawyer will arrange for a survey to be completed, if necessary.
