Top Ten Dos and Don'ts when buying an Unusual Property

1. Do check out what financing restrictions/options there are.

2. Don't overpay for an unusual property, do lots of research first.

3. Do have a 30 percent contingency available for the cost of buying and any work that needs doing.

4. Don't make an offer until you have drawn up detailed budgets, fixing prices where you can.

5. Do have expert surveys done and do what they have recommended.

6. Don't buy without really understanding the downsides of your purchase.

7. Do make sure you budget additional costs for bespoke furniture/window sizes.

8. Don't confirm your offer without checking what insurance restrictions/options are available.

9. Do be aware that it may take you a long time to sell the property as the market will be restricted.
