We are going to be doing research together but just want a very basic understanding from people with more knowledge first. We are planning for every personal expense not just the house.
So far we know we have to cover:
Moving Costs ( renting a truck or movers)
Down Payment for new home
Lawyer? ( Not sure if this is mandatory my research would suggest one)
That's what I can think of so far. The house was bought 5 years ago and naturally they haven't payed off the mortgage, just thought I'd mention that in case it plays a role in costs.
I look forward to everyone's advice. Sorry if I sound ignorant on the issue i'm not very educated on it and the reading I've done so far is basic and still hard to comprehend.
