Moving with Kiteleys

Moving home is a huge commitment practically and emotionally. Finding the right solicitors to guide you through the process as well as on the big day is so important to ensure it goes through as smooth as possible. Given that it is reassuring that a friendly solicitor team can be on the end of the phone if you have questions or queries throughout the moving day.

They can be your middleman between all parties in the moving chain and give you the knowledge you really need when in a possible panic.

You will probably be working between the two properties during the day, if there are more than one of you can make this easier by sharing the duties, and if possible more the merrier.

For an almost effortless moving day here are a few reminders and tips:

The Old House
•    Night before the move, chargeyour mobile and so on the day keep your ‘fully charged’ mobile close to hand
•    Have a few extra boxes, bags and wrapping materials on hand for last minute items
•    Check all rooms , cupboards, sheds, garage and garden to make sure you haven’t missed anything
•    Clean up after yourself, mopping , sweeping, hovering as each room is emptied, closing the door behind you  to show that it is completed
•    Take meter  readings – make a note or call immediately if you can (so take note of numbers to call), electric, gas, water (if necessary)
•    If you know the property will be empty for a while, turn off water at the stopcock and electric at the fuse box
•    Leave an instruction guides/manuals  for new tenants in an obvious place
•    Leave contact details just in case the new tenant needs to forward post or has an emergency question

The New Home
•    Keep your mobile (and charger) close to hand
•    Emergency kit – take the must-have kit with you which includes the simple things, kettle, mugs, spoons tea, coffee, milk, bathroom toiletries and small first aid kit, maybe the odd treat!
•    Very important possessions – keep important documents, e.g passport, bank account details, insurances etc with you so you know they are safe and not lost. Take small heirlooms, wedding albums and your most prized items if you can and put them somewhere safe
•    Lay protective sheeting or polythene over carpets while removals are bringing boxes in
•    Make a note of meter readings
•    Keep on eye where boxes are going, and direct where necessary
•    Don’t upset the neighbours – if the removal van or your car blocks someone’s access, ask first and introduce yourself, people are much more accommodating if they are informed initially
•    Keep the gangways clear – make sure hallways, corridors and pathways  are left empty for faster and easier transportation of boxes into rooms and the garden
•    Cork open the champagne!
