What Causes Your Roof to Leak and What Should You Do About it?

What Causes Your Roof to Leak and What Should You Do About it?“Leaking Roof?”

No one wants a leaking roof as they can cause excessive damage to your home, wall linings and frames. Most leaking roofs are due to cracks in the roof tiles that are the result of accidental damage. A ball on the roof for example and an over-excited teenager climbing the roof to fetch it can cause a broken or cracked roof tile.

The simple installation of a television antenna can do the same thing.

Your roof should be inspected regularly for cracked tiles or areas that require re-pointing. This really is a job for a qualified tradesman. A regular building inspection will cover this for you and give you the peace of mind you need.

Things You Need to Know Before You Bid at Auction

Things You Need to Know Before You Bid at AuctionLaws governing the purchase of property at auction differ from those covering private treaty.
It is advisable to make sure you are in a position to bid at auction, prior to attending.

A successful highest bidder is committed to proceed with the purchase so bidders need to ensure that they are in a position to proceed.

The purchase at auction (under the hammer) is not subject to a cooling off period or building inspection, it is an unconditional contract.

Tips for preparing to bid include:

  • Obtain written finance approval. This can be subject to a valuation so this may need to be done prior to the auction.
  • Arrange the deposit. Check with the agent what is required. It is usually 10% and payable by cheque or bank cheque on the day.
  • Undertake a pest and building report prior to the auction if the owner has not provided one. If they have, call and discuss report with the inspector.
  • Have your legal representative peruse the agreement for sale and undertake due diligence.

Quality Appliances Offer a Quality Price

Quality Appliances Offer a Quality PriceSo you’re renovating your bathrooms and kitchen area, choosing colours, tiles and appliances. It’s true that quality, fashionable appliances add value to your property or at least make it more attractive to potential buyers. In particular, bathrooms and kitchens sell homes.

Quality fixtures and fittings add that special touch to your property, making it visually pleasing and adding a heightened sense of value and style. However, buying appliances that will appeal doesn’t necessarily mean buying the most expensive. It’s wise to shop around and see what features, tones and colours are fashionable and practical, as most buyers especially love clean lines and practicality.
