What costs should I be aware of?

You will need to meet the usual costs of buying a home which includes a deposit, legal fees, stamp duty land tax, dependent on the property purchase price and any relevant mortgage fees. You should consult a solicitor and independent financial advisor for more information.

We will arrange building insurance and the cost will be recharged on an annual basis but you will need to arrange your own contents insurance.

If the property has shared facilities / communal areas, there will be a service charge for these costs. The exact amount will be dependent on the property.

Ground rent (apartments only) may be payable on the property and it will be at the rate that is in place at that time.

Furnishing of your home including dressing your windows will be entirely at your own cost.

Once you have moved into your new home, you will be entirely responsible for all the usual costs of maintenance and upkeep associated with owning a property.
