1.     Quality: Some of the builders apply a damp proof course while others do not. There are some builders that make use of wall cavity while other builders just make use of a layer of red hollow clay blocks. Some buildings are built with a solid concrete roof while others just use a wooden frame with non insulated roofing tiles places on thin wooden beams. You should be able to differentiate between all of these to see the quality of what you want to buy. Some houses are really poorly built from the foundations up yet are rendered and painted very well in order to deceive potential buyers. Such houses cost more in the long run due to repair that become necessary than buying a good quality house or apartment to begin. Therefore, it is advisable to confirm the building’s quality starting from the foundation work whenever you want to buy a new house or apartment. Always make serious enquiries unless you want to live in a leaky apartment during the winter.

Knowing the size of your plot will help you to plan your building very well and you need the services of a land surveyor to help you do. Secondly before you think of developing your land, you have to contact an architect for the proper planning of your building. If the above is not done you may not have the great building that you desire. If you are buying a completed house, make sure that the house is built according to plan and that all building permissions were sought and building regulations met. A house that has no plan is never good and you may find yourself in the terrible position of having to have your home demolished if the council does not accept that the building is safe. Besides this there is always a waste of space in house that were not properly planned prior to the start of the build.
