You might think you need a new house because you’ve just got a new baby, or you’re on a tight budget.
But the real problem is that many people don’t know the difference between buying a property and buying a house.
The term ‘house’, in this case, is not the right one to be used to describe a property.
If you buy a house and then later sell it, it’s a ‘lease’.
The property is a part of the tenancy and there is no right to buy or sell it.
If it’s sold and the buyer does nothing with it, you’re still responsible for the value of the property and it’s not your responsibility to make payments.
If the property is on the market, it can be a very useful asset to you.
You can buy it as a ‘property loan’ for a relatively low deposit or as a long-term lease to buy a property you’re looking to redevelop.
But most importantly, you are legally responsible for it.
The law applies the same way to the sale of a house as it does to any other asset you’ve acquired, so the rules of the law are the same for both.
In fact, it is the same law that applies to both selling and buying houses.
It’s called the ‘sale of a home’.
If you’re thinking of selling your house, you need to make sure it’s actually worth buying.
If your bank or broker recommends you buy it, the sale is an ‘underwriting transaction’.
This is when the bank or brokerage buys the property on behalf of you, without asking you for a deposit.
This is a good time to look into whether you should buy it.
Here’s a breakdown of how the rules work.
You may be able to buy the property outright without making a deposit, but you’ll need to pay a deposit on top of the deposit.
If there’s no deposit on the sale, you’ll get your deposit back as a loan.
It’ll be the same as if you sold the property directly for cash.
If, however, the property’s value goes up or down because of the sale (and, as a result, the value is higher or lower than the amount you paid for it), the lender will be liable for that difference in value.
In this case you’ll be paying the difference to the bank.
In the example above, the bank will be responsible for paying a 20 per cent deposit on your purchase.
If that amount goes up, the lender may be responsible.
If they’re not, they may still be liable.
You’ll need a deposit for the loan to go ahead.
But if the property goes up in value, you won’t be able buy it outright, even if you’ve bought it on the same day.
You have to put down a deposit to buy it if you’re a first-time buyer.
If a mortgage is offered for the property, the buyer will need to put a deposit onto the loan.
This means the lender is required to pay the full amount on the mortgage plus a further 20 per 10 per cent.
If this is done, the mortgage is the ‘underwritten’ transaction.
The seller and buyer have to agree to the terms before it can go ahead, and there’s a chance they could split the loan or cancel the deal if the seller doesn’t honour the terms.
If either party does not agree, the seller has to pay back the deposit to the lender.
The buyer will have to pay all of the money they put into the property up front.
The lender will then take the difference and give it back to you as a deposit or loan repayment.
It is this extra 20 per 50 per cent of the purchase price that will be the real cost of the loan and it will be paid back to the buyer in the same manner as a sale.
If both parties agree to this, they have agreed to a ‘loan’ arrangement.
The loan will be a long term lease.
Under this arrangement, you can borrow money up front and repay the money at a later date.
But there’s another important aspect to the loan that’s often missed: you’ll pay the lender’s interest.
This payment is the difference in the purchase and sale prices.
It will be used for the repayments.
The amount you’ll owe on the loan depends on the length of the lease.
You could pay the mortgage off in instalments over time, but this can increase your costs over time and can reduce your repayment options.
In some circumstances, you may be required to repay the mortgage before you can buy the house.
If all else fails, you could get a ‘sale-on-lease’ (SOL) arrangement.
This would be similar to a sale but with an added layer of security: a loan guarantee.
If neither party pays the mortgage on time, the loan will not be repaid.
If an agreement to buy is made and both parties do not agree to it,
