I'm looking at buying. Conditions will include at least LIM, builders report, code compliance certificate at least and finance.
I received a letter a year or so ago advising me that my current lawyer (well, the one I used to buy my current home) had been struck off - and I have no other lawyerly needs.
BTW I'm in Chch but house I'm looking at is in Wgtn.
Cheers - N
