Questions to ask at a property viewing

We’ve compiled a list of essential questions to ask when viewing a property. Whether you are planning to rent or to buy, gathering as much information as possible is advised, either through asking the estate agent, owner or by completing your own research. You’ll then feel in the best possible position to make a decision about whether to proceed with the property or not.

If you are buying a property, remember to complete all your required property surveys and searches through your solicitor or independently if required. This will help identify any larger, structural issues or repair works that you may not be able to see at the viewing.

To help you on your way, we have compiled a list of cleaning that needs to be complete for each changeover of guests, and also essential areas for a deep clean, as often as required.
