Buying a private house: what to look for

Pri­vate hous­es are becom­ing more and more pop­u­lar. There is a par­tic­u­lar­ly high demand for this type of prop­er­ty near large urban cen­ters. After the fast dai­ly rhythm of the metrop­o­lis, in the evening there is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to relax and enjoy the silence in your own home.
But in order for the pur­chase of a pri­vate house to bring only pos­i­tive emo­tions, when view­ing, you need to care­ful­ly famil­iar­ize your­self with the key char­ac­ter­is­tics of the prop­er­ty.


  • Loca­tion area
  • Tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics of the house
  • Avail­abil­i­ty of all nec­es­sary doc­u­ments for the house

Location area

When plan­ning to buy a house in Yur­ga, fam­i­ly mem­bers should dis­cuss the amount of time that each fam­i­ly mem­ber is will­ing to spend dai­ly on the road to the most vis­it­ed places (work, school). Accord­ing­ly, you need to look for a pri­vate house in the radius that allows you to meet at this time.
If the house has already been cho­sen, then it is nec­es­sary to study the trans­port routes that will allow you to get to the place of res­i­dence. Famil­iar­ize your­self with the infra­struc­ture of the new ter­ri­to­ry. It will not be super­flu­ous to get acquaint­ed with the ecol­o­gy of the place, devel­op­ment plans.
Acquain­tance with future neigh­bors will allow you to learn more about the build­ing itself, the ter­ri­to­ry, and the inhab­i­tants of the new area.

Technical characteristics of the house

While view­ing the house, you need to study it very care­ful­ly, pay­ing atten­tion to all the details. Do not be afraid to ask the own­ers a lot about real estate. It is bet­ter to write down the short­com­ings and advan­tages.
When inspect­ing a pri­vate house, you need to pay atten­tion to:
• Integri­ty of walls out­side and inside.
• Roof con­di­tion. Is there mold, smudges and oth­er defects.
• Foun­da­tion strength.
• No signs of flood­ing in the base­ment.
• Qual­i­ty of water sup­ply. Pipes must be intact and not rusty.
• Func­tion­ing of the sew­er­age sys­tem.
• The qual­i­ty of the heat­ing sys­tem.
• Integri­ty of elec­tri­cal wiring.
• Pow­er of the ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem.
View­ing with a tech­ni­cian will reduce the risk of buy­ing a house with many defects. The ser­vices of a pro­fes­sion­al will cost much less than future repairs.

Availability of all necessary documents for the house

If the loca­tion of the object and its tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics are com­plete­ly sat­is­fied, you can pro­ceed to the legal com­po­nent of the house.
The list of required doc­u­ments will depend on the prop­er­ty and the con­di­tions of its sale. But there is a list of required doc­u­ments that sell­ers must have at home:
• A doc­u­ment con­firm­ing the own­er­ship of the land.
• Doc­u­ment of own­er­ship of the house.
• The doc­u­ment on the basis of which the sell­ers acquired the own­er­ship of the house and land (for exam­ple, a con­tract of sale).
• Cadas­tral and tech­ni­cal pass­ports for land and house.
• Agree­ments with insti­tu­tions pro­vid­ing util­i­ty ser­vices.
In addi­tion, it is impor­tant to check what sta­tus the land of the set­tle­ment has. And do the actu­al bound­aries of the land plot cor­re­spond to the doc­u­men­ta­tion.
