Home Truths: A Guide to Buying and Selling Property offers information for the reader to thoughtfully assess the needs in the world of property transactions. The book starts by considering renting/being a tenant and then moves on as a guide through the process of getting a mortgage/purchasing, with a discussion of the financial and tax consequences, as well as an explanation of selling process. It also looks at property investment in three forms: buy-to-let, buying abroad, and commercial property. These areas are full of uncertainty and risk, as well as opportunity and profit, but risk and uncertainty can be minimized (though not eliminated) by developing an understanding of how these specialized areas of property investment operate. Finally, the book also considers property issues that can arise in the later years of life, such as property downsizing, equity release, and inheritance tax planning.This is not a a#39;do it yourselfa#39; guide in the sense of explaining how you can implement the mechanics of buying or selling property yourself ... you will save more money by shopping around for your furniture than you would by doing your own conveyancing a and it is not a ticket to becoming ... It is, however, intended to explain and give you control of the process of buying and owning a property of your own.
