Who Are The Different Parties Involved In Purchasing Property?

At any time, any person wishes to purchase a property, there is excitement but at the same time, it is a nerve-wrecking experience, this explains why it will be an asset to surround yourself with a network of support and expertise. Subsequently the various parties involved in your home buying process would be analysed as well as how you could use this valuable knowledge base to answer your questions.

Real Estate Agents

A vendor or seller hires them and their role is to market and communicate about the property, advice on preparing it for sale and negotiate with potential buyers. Therefore, unless you are working with a private vendor, meeting a real estate agent is inevitable when it comes to purchasing a property.

Insurance Companies

In such a high-value purchase and long-term financial commitment, risk management is very essential. To avoid being hit with major financial burden should anything not go according to plan, insurance, mortgage protection and property insurance would be valuable assets to have at your arsenal. In this light, many financial brokers can deal with insurance as well, or will recommend an insurance broker who can.


There are solicitors who can provide legal advice, but generally, the legal aspect of a property purchase is taken care of by a licenced and qualified conveyancer. They prepare documents to ensure that transfer of ownership of the property has met the legal requirements in your state or territory as one of their functions.


It is imperative in a loan application to be aware of the value of the loan property, so a valuer can play a huge role in the home buying process. More often than not, a lender would engage an impartial valuer in order to ensure the buyer and the lender will know what loan amount may be warranted. The value is based on the property and location, as well as the current market.

Pest and Building Inspectors

The services of pest and building inspectors cannot be under looked, a homebuyer’s nightmare finding out the property they have brought requires costly renovations or pest treatment may become a reality. Organising a pre-purchase inspection is therefore essential. If the property requires structural, wiring or repair work, these can stop you from making a costly mistake or, if the property is still your home but just needs a little work, can provide a valuable bargaining chip.


It doesn’t matter if it’s a major bank, a second-tier or non-major or specialist lender for more difficult funding proposals, bottom line is, if you need money to make your purchase, you will need a lender.
