Pathways to home ownership

If you’ve decided home ownership is for you, then its  important to make sure your plan covers all the right bases. Sorted’s guide to buying a home is a good place to start thinking about it and includes:

–       getting a mortgage and whether to use a broker

–       the government Welcome home programme

Consumer also has some useful material about buying or building a home regardless of whether you are a member.

When you’re thinking about home insurance it’s important to be aware of the way all homes are now insured and some of the issues you face in calculating what cover you need.  See this story also on the same topic.
