Buying a House part 7/10 – Measuring/Planning

By May 19, 2017Knowledge & Tips

Once you know you are going ahead with the sale – arrange to visit the property again to measure.  It would be useful to have a professional do this for you and produce scaled drawings so you can decide on layouts, furnishings and even provisional colour schemes.  If you intend to have any built-in furniture – we recommend having the contractor go to site to assess the best way to construct and to take measurements on site (not all walls are straight which will vastly affect offsite pre-built joinery!)

If you are intending to start a big renovation as soon as possible – get measuring and planning asap though beware that any work undertaken by professionals before exchange will have to be paid for – even if the sale falls through.
