Q: A while back my family came under financial strain and fell behind on some debt repayments. As a result, we were blacklisted.
We have come through the ordeal and are now in a position where we want to apply for a bond. However, the blacklisting is standing in our way. What can we do?
Q: Do I need to do an entire home facelift in order to get my home sold?
A: Not at all. Minor home improvements might add value to the sale but do not make or break it.
Q: We are going to list our house for sale in the next few months. What are the costs that we need to be aware of?
Most of the costs associated with property transactions are for the buyer’s account but there will be some costs you need to prepare for.
Q: I want to enter the buy-to-let market. Would it be better to invest in a sectional title or full title property?
Before Covid-19 I would have opted for a sectional-title property but am concerned that after lockdown these properties could lose popularity.
