Step 1: Find A Lawyer

Hire a licensed lawyer who has specialized in real estate who will help you in the buying of the house.

It is also good to find a lawyer who has a good reputation in that sector.

Select your preferred house of choice that meet your desires so as to avoid living in a house that you are not satisfied with.

Agreement of purchase and sale is prepared by the lawyer that you are working with.

Step 4: Have Real Identities Of Seller

Contact the seller in order to get their real names, property address, price you are willing to pay, the deposit, request for a land survey of the property, among others.

Be sure that the name of the seller matches with the ID and property names in the order they follow each other.

If say your seller is called Mia Mbili, all details including ID and property details should have that name in that order.

Otherwise, if another document reads Mbili Mia be very cautious because legally this is a different person.

You may end up in trouble in future in case the person with second name (Mbili Mia) comes to claim the house which you bought from the Mia Mbili. Fraud cases happen like this.

Step 5: Negotiate

After negotiation there is an agreement in which transaction of the money should take place.
