  1. I am interested in a house but it has oil fired heating. Apparently this is not as desirable as gas central heating. Would it be a major work if I decide to convert to gas? It is a semi-D, and I am totally new to this country, coming from a tropical country with no experience of heating systems. Thanks very much for your valuable input.
  2. Hello to all again, I am from overseas and looking at property websites before my visit later this year. I found an apartment for sale in Belfast which has a doctor's surgery on the ground floor. It seems unusual. Are there any potential problems with owning such an apartment? Thanks very much in advance for your input. gasman
  3. Hello everybody, I am new here and an overseas buyer planning to buy for my kid's use studying in Belfast. I have been reading that now is a good time to buy. However, I am not sure of the local "culture" so I am posting here: 1. Is South Belfast a "good" part of town to buy; in particular, not sectarian? (I am Buddhist) 2. Is it the seller who pays the estate agent's commission? 3. What is the difference between a terrace and a townhouse? 4. Is there a "standard" legal fees for conveyancing or do I have to "shop" around for a lawyer? 5. Is it usual to pay 10% of the price upon signing of the Sales and Purchase agreement and a further 3 months to settle the rest? 6. If I am buying a house, which would be better - the front lounge or back of the house facing south? Thanks very much in advance. gasman
