Who is paying the estate agency fees in the sale of a property?

The seller always pays agency fees, unless you come up with a different agreement with your agency. Although the seller pays his agency, the agent has an ethical obligation to see that the purchaser gets fair value for money – a part of a good agent’s job is to bring the buyer and seller together in harmony. This points out the importance of working with an established real estate agency with a strong reputation. The agency also has a commitment to see that the title deed to the property is passed free of all liens and inconveniencies.

 

What if I want to buy a plot and build my own home?

Given that a building plot is situated within an urbanization, or an area zoned within the Municipal Plan for such use, outline planning permission will already have been approved for the construction of a detached home. However, building regulations, which vary considerably, dictate the allowed size of the villa according to the size of the plot. Care should therefore be taken before proceeding with the land purchase, making sure that one will be allowed to construct the type of home they have chosen.
