Why buy a house over a condominium?

There are several benefits to buying a house over a condominium. Firstly is of course the extra space you’ll have purchasing a house. If you enjoy hobbies that require space, then a house garage could be a perfect spot to pick up your old hobby!

Another good point is that most condominium apartments don’t allow pets. So, if you have a dog or a cat it can be very difficult to rent a condominium. Even if the landlord is okay with pets the management team might not be!

What are the additional costs associated with buying a house?

Buying a house has several additional upfront costs and operational costs compared to a condominium apartment.

You’ll also need to budget for general maintenance costs associated with the plumbing, water treatment and any renovations you plan to do.

3.       If the house is inherited, you’ll need to make sure that all family members sign the contract. They’ll also need to a sign a separate document stating that their future grand children have no rights to claim this property.

4.       Once the contracts have been signed, you’ll need to go back to OEain and change the Title on the Land Deed.
