Frequently asked questions

  • Purchasing process

    • Why is it better to buy early?

      For one, first buyers always have more choice. Secondly, early buyers can have more say, when it comes to designing their home, change the layout and choose the materials. Thirdly, early buyers will receive a small gift from us.

    • How does the booking and purchase process work?

    • What is a pre-sale? Should I be afraid to purchase a home that hasn't been built yet?

      It has been the practice in the Nordic countries for decades that the construction of an apartment building will not commence until 30-40% of the apartments have been booked in advance. Today, this principle has also reached the Estonian market. A good pre-sale gives confidence to the developer and the bank financing the construction, as well as the buyers.

    • Can I include the furnishing in a bank loan?

      As a rule, furniture ordered from Liven can be financed with a mortgage. However, the final decision with regard to financing is made by the bank for each customer individually.

    • What is included in the price?

      For the purchase price, you get a finished home: the parquet is laid down, the walls are painted, sanitary units are tiled, sanitary equipment is installed, there are lights in the suspended ceilings and the rooms have doors installed. We do not offer discounts, but sometimes we give the first buyers something as a token of gratitude. We agree on the exact list of finishes in a notarial contract.

    • What other costs do I have to consider when buying a home?

      The highest cost is related to furnishing the home, but you should take into account that the price of the apartment also includes the cost of a parking space and storage room, notary state fees, loan agreement fee, apartment association reserve fund payment and connection fees for security and communication services. You can find the conditions for joining the communication service on Telia’s and Elisa’s websites.

    • What is the financing process with mortgage loan?

      To buy a home with a mortgage, you need to visit the bank in time or fill out a loan application on the bank’s website to find out the limits of your mortgage options. It takes about one week to receive a preliminary assessment from the bank. Until then, we will keep your chosen apartment free of charge. Self-financing usually amounts to 10-15% of the purchase price.

    • Which bank can I get a mortgage from?

      First, we recommend contacting your local bank, but you could definitely ask for an offer from other banks as well. We have good cooperation with larger banks.

    • When should I sell my old apartment?

      If you are financing the purchase of a home from the sale of your old apartment, we recommend that you first find out the value of your current apartment. Here you can get help from evaluators. The sale of the apartment should start no later than half a year before the new home is completed.

    • How long does it take to conclude a notarial contract?

      The conclusion of a contract under the law of obligations takes one hour to one hour and a half, the conclusion of a real right contract takes 30 minutes.

Sometime in the future, when you consider selling your apartment, the lack of a parking space will mean fewer buyers.

    • What are the technical data of a separately ordered electric car charging stations?

There is a dynamic control system for charging cars, which means that cars are charged when the overall electricity consumption of the building is low.

    • Why buy a storage room?
