In this week’s Conveyancing Q&A, Hilary Jenkins shows you how to minimise your legal fees.
I am new to investing in property having only bought one property so far (my home). Should I always obtain a LIM report? What should I look out for in a LIM report for a property meant to be a rental.
It is always a good idea to get a LIM for any property, regardless of why you are purchasing as it can affect the current and future property use as well
as on-sale value if there are problems with unconsented work.
What to look for in a LIM for a rental is no different than if it was your own home – check carefully at the details relating to zoning, building consents
issued against work actually carried out and all the hazard information as well as building/site/services plans associated with the property.
