Buying a property

Updated at June 2017

Buying a home is a major financial decision in one's life.

In order for housing to be considered adequate, the United Nations (opens in new window)has established that it must, at a minimum, meet the following criteria:

  • Location.
  • Accessibility.
  • Availability of services, materials, facilities and infrastructure.
  • Habitability.
  • Cultural adequacy.
  • Security of tenure.
  • Affordability: costs affordable for the owner of the property.

The aim of this guide is to help people who are interested in buying a home to find and purchase, through a purchase and sale agreement, the right home for their needs.
