Homebuyers given advice on looking for winter-proof houses for sale

People looking to purchase houses for sale in the following few months have been given advice on how to make sure their potential homes are winter-proof.

Age UK has told homeowners to prepare for freezing temperatures this winter, suggesting that properties should be kept protected from the cold weather.

It stated that insulated outside taps would help prevent them from freezing and bursting when the temperature drops, while lofts and pipes should be well lagged so that less heat escapes from the property.

These are a couple of areas that potential homeowners could look at when viewing properties for sale in the UK, in addition to making sure the boiler works and trees are cut back so they do not cause damage in windy weather.

Home insurance provider Hiscox also recommended glancing at the mains water supply and checking whether tanks and pipes are insulated in unheated areas including outbuildings or lofts. ADNFCR-1222-ID-800254516-ADNFCR
