Safety, Products and Liability: A Legal Blog

Welcome to my blog. This blog is dedicated to helping anyone who is currently in the midst of a liability issue. A few years ago, my daughter contracted listeria due to poorly packaged food. She, thankfully, was okay, but we still took her case to court. I want all families who have been affected by liability issues to understand their rights, so I decided to start this blog. My beautiful daughter is now 17 and preparing to start uni next year. I have three younger children as well and an amazing husband. Thank you for reading my blog.

How A Conveyancer Will Help You Purchase A Holiday Home

by Liesanne Martin

Many people want to invest in real estate, and holiday homes have become a favourite for most investors. Typically, you lease or rent the house while you are away and use it during the holidays. So, how do you buy your first holiday home? The extract below details how conveyancing services can assist you in making your investment. 

Choosing A Suitable Location

You might be inclined to purchase the holiday home in your favourite vacation destination. However, since you will be making a substantial investment, you should prioritise logic over emotions. Your conveyancer will conduct background research to determine suitable locations for a holiday home. Typically, they will evaluate the demand for holiday homes, the rental prices, tourist seasons and market gaps to establish the best location for your holiday home. This due diligence will guarantee a return on your investment. 

To Buy Or To Build

Most investors will be in a dilemma of whether to buy or build their holiday homes. Your conveyancer will examine your needs and help you overcome this conundrum. In most cases, construction is a suitable option if you need a custom holiday home. It could be that you have identified a market gap that compels you to build the house. On the other hand, buying is a straightforward process since you can close the deal within a few weeks. Besides, you will avoid the stresses of managing the contractor. 

Identifying Property

Your conveyancer will help you choose a suitable property. Ideally, they will check local and exclusive listings to identify homes within your budget range. Additionally, they will help narrow your search by helping you decide the property size, required features, appeal, amenities and precise location. After this, they will inspect the property to ensure it is built according to standards.


One hurdle that you will undoubtedly face when buying property is negotiating for a price cut. In most cases, the seller will adopt a hardliner position since they may have several buyers interested in the property. In this case, your conveyancer will use various strategies to get a price cut. For example, they could present mortgage pre-approval letters to prove that you are a serious customer. Moreover, they could gamble with the seller's psychology by pitting them against other sellers. 

When investing in a holiday home, your conveyancer will help you determine a suitable location, decide whether to build or buy, identify a property and negotiate the asking price.
