Hi Everyone, Just wanting some advice. I'm thinking of buying a house to live in. I'm so over renting already, and also because interest rates are soooooo low, it would actually cost me less to buy. I've found one I really like, the problem is that I'm still tied to my ex-husband. We sold most of our properties after we separated (we're now divorced), however decided to keep one investment property each. We have a court order that grants this arrangement, however neither of us have actually refinanced the place we are keeping. So this is my question? Is it a bad idea to buy a place without him having taken over the property he is keeping completely i.e. he hasn't refinanced the loan yet? Also, the house has a pool. I've never owned a pool before. Is it worth getting a separate building inspection for the pool? It says in the building report that the pool is in good condition, however there is some rust in one part of the pool. It's a small patch about 10cm x 10cm at most. I'm not sure if that's anything to worry about? Finally, there's no evidence of termites in the house, or any existing termite damage. However, there is termite damage in the shed which is out the back and stores the pool equipment. The report says there is no evidence of live termites in there. Should I get a more thorough termite test done? Or is it a waste of money? And how much does termite prevention treatment cost?
