Of course, none of us has enough time to gather experience before buying those attractive plots for sale in Islamabad on installments. The plots won’t wait for you. Therefore, we have compiled a list of the most important and must-ask questions for you that would act as a crash course to buying a land plot. These questions cover nearly every important aspect of the land. No matter what kind of land you are buying, make sure you ask these questions before you hand them your hard-earned money.

Why did the previous owner decide to sell this plot?

While buying a plot, it is important to know why it is even up for sale. By asking this, you might be able to find out if there are any problems with the land. For example, there could be any existing tenant or lease obligations or a property line dispute with the neighboring landowners.

Are the boundaries of the plot properly marked?

This is one of the essentials. You need to have a clear understanding of the property’s boundaries. This can save you from a lot of trouble. For instance, if you plant trees or build something on land that lies outside your property, you could be sued. If there are uncertainties about the plot boundaries, you must ask if a survey of the land has been done or not. The latest or recent survey may have details about the boundaries of your property.

What titles and rights will I get with this plot?

For those who don’t know, rights are the benefits that you get when you buy a property. These include development rights, road access rights, and so on. On the other hand, a title is a collection of rights in a land plot, for example, access easement, exclusive possession, etc.

Many titles are passed down from landowner to landowner. Therefore, they can be quite outdated and difficult to understand. Rights and titles can get a little complex for some of us sometimes, especially titles. For this reason, many people prefer hiring a title attorney.

What is the ground condition of the plot?

When a piece of land has problems with it, it is not obvious most of the time. There is a number of issues that your land can have. For example, your land could be contaminated with harmful chemicals. Also, the ground might not be level, which would create problems during construction and raise your costs. Apart from that, it could be too rocky to dig deep foundations for a building. Therefore, we recommend getting a qualified surveyor to check the ground conditions of your land before sealing the deal.

Are there any environmental hazards associated with this plot?

Just like the ground condition, lethal environmental hazards can’t be seen by the naked eye. This can further increase your chances of getting scammed. An environmental hazard can exist in many forms. For example, it can be the toxic runoff in the water, broken underground pipes, and so on.

These hazards aren’t just bad for your land and its value but for the resident of the plot as well. It can result in serious and deadly health issues at worst.
