Learning about the neighbourhood
When you’ve found the property you want to buy, it’s a good idea to get to know the neighbourhood before you make an offer.
Summary of important things to know
Check the neighbourhood and talk to the neighbours to make sure you’re happy with the immediate area.
Arrange to visit the property at different times of day and at the weekend to check the sun, traffic and activity in the neighbourhood.
Contact the council to ask about any zoning changes and any new developments planned nearby.
This information on learning about the neighbourhood may not cover everything that is relevant to you or the property. You should always get advice from your own lawyer or conveyancer and other registered professionals.
