Massive Help On The Way For Ftbs

Recommended Posts

"But one in five first-time buyers said they thought the introduction of Home Information Packs in 2007 would be a
significant help
in purchasing their first home.
The packs will contain details on a property, including a home condition report and local authority searches, meaning potential buyers will no longer have to pay to get these done themselves."

Looks like the FTBs no longer have to worry because Gordon Brown and his merry Government are rushing in to help with information packs...

Pass the saucepan, quick, brrruuuuupppecchhhhhhhh

On balance, the first timers will be able to rip the pages out of the report, and shove them in the cracks around the window frames of their £250K ex-council property. This will do until the kind old lady next door loans some draught excluder tape.

Indeed, it will mean potential buyers can avoid wasting money instructing a solicitor and doing surverys just to find out those dark hidden secrets. They can keep away right from the start.
I would recommend getting a Land Registry report on any property, you'd be suprised how many EA and vendors put forward misleading statements about the plots hoping buyers wont notice wont care after going through all the process.

So that's 4/5 thought it would have absolutely no effect? I read the article and they're trying to at least give a glimmer of hope to FTBs as the rest of the article was A) Glum Reading B) A Great Ad To "Investors".
