I'm just wondering if anyone's bought a new build property recently and can tell me... If you add some upgrades and additions to a property do these get added on to the price of the house (ie, the mortgage would cover them) or do you have to pay for them outright? Does that make sense?
Hi, we've just done that. You have to pay for the upgrades separately from your mortgage, on a credit card or similar. Was a surprise to us, but normally you can negotiate paying 50% of it, and it also has 14 day cooling off in case something goes wrong!
We've got some things included, like flooring in the bathroom and basic kitchen etc but we have chosen to upgrade our kitchen doors and surfaces and our flooring, as well as moving some plugs around and adding chrome lighting. Also things like outdoor lighting, burglar alarm, power to the garage.Come to about £18,000 I think.
