    What To Do Before moving in: useful tricks

    Before moving in to your new home, it’s important to make sure that everything is as it should be. You may have had a list of repairs you expected – or this may be the first time you’ve seen the house empty.

    Take some time to go around with a notepad and check all of the sockets for obvious signs of wear and tear and look for damage that you might be otherwise liable for moving in.

    Ensure that any cupboards are empty, free of damp, mold or bad smells, and keep a close note of where the electricity, water and gas boxes are. While doing this, you’ll also be getting a feel for where you can place any furniture, how to get it up any stairs or even just into the house.

    Before moving in, you should note down any damage or concerns you have to be discussed with whomever you’re dealing with

    Its important to have these notes before moving anything in so that you can get the problems remedied as soon as possible.

    If you’re renting from a landlord, he’ll give you a list of any fittings, fixtures and furniture he’s leaving – its very common nowadays for landlords to leave ‘white goods’ – kitchen appliances, such as the fridge, freezer, washing machine and cooker.

    If you’re renting, your landlord should also give you contact details, emergency repair numbers, and any paperwork pertaining to these emergency repairs that you may need before you moving in.

    You may also want to get bank details or arrange a good time to come and collect rent. Any final paperwork can be signed now, and then you can start making your new place your own.

    You should also ensure that the central heating and boiler are working correctly and collect any manuals for these from the previous occupant – these manuals will save you a lot of frustration in the long run.

    Organize everything before packing: If you’re using a moving in/packing checklist, this should be one of the items on it. What you should do is organize by room for your new place, not for your current residence.

    Having a good plan for where moving in things will go in the future will save you from having to move the contents of a single box across multiple rooms.

    Thoroughly clean the old place: Just because the landlord will clean the apartment after you leave doesn’t mean you should leave everything exactly as it was. It’s the right thing to do, and it gives you a chance to fix anything that might prevent you from receiving your security deposit back.

    Get rid of anything you don’t need: The best way to spend less time and effort moving things is to have less stuff to move in the first place. Begin giving away, selling, or throwing away items that are weighing you down.

    You get rid of the clutter in your life, save time, effort, and possibly money in the moving process, and you may even make some money in the process. It’s a win on every level.

    To finalize your move, contact your current landlord: This isn’t giving notice; you’ve done that (hopefully) a long time ago. On moving in day, make sure you can load the truck and hand the keys over to your landlord or someone else in management. Make certain that someone will be present at the appointed time.
