What should you know before you buy your dream home?

On Wednesday, April 20 at 12 noon, NZ Herald will host a live chat with John Gray, the president of the Home Owners and Buyers Association of New Zealand (Hobanz). He can answer your questions on sale and purchase agreements, home inspections, new builds and renovations, dealing with disputes and more.

Hobanz is an advocacy and education organisation that represents consumers. Gray came to national prominence as a voice for change during the leaky-building crisis a decade ago and continues to advocate for reform on issues affecting buyers and owners.

Gray is one of three property experts advising our Home Truths house hunters - and readers - on how to find your first home and what to watch out for in an overheated housing market.


Submit your questions starting Wednesday morning in the chat window below:
