When buying a property it’s important to not only know how much you can borrow, but to also have a clear picture on what it is you want in a property. Knowing which features are negotiable and which are non-negotiable will help keep your head and heart in check when it comes to shopping for a property. This is particularly important if you are purchasing a property with a partner, family member or friend, as it can act as a reference point if you are finding it hard to agree on a property.

 

We’ve put together this handy printable to help you consider what it is you want in your property.
