Tips For Moving To A New Property

Buying property can be an exciting experience, but it is also one that's hurdled with legalities. Well, apart from the paperwork, there are a lot of other factors that can make your move a hectic one including the expenses you incur. If you've gotten yourself a beautiful home and you want to move in as soon as possible, then here are some tips for every major stage in conveyancing.

Make the home remain yours

You've made the deal and the seller has agreed to it. The house is in theory already yours, but you need to make sure of this. Some sellers still continue marketing the house, and you have to insist that the property gets off the market. Ensure the sellers are fully aware that you are going to buy the house. Once you incur costs of surveying the house and inspecting it, you don't want them to pull out just because a sweeter offer came through for them.

Fill your paperwork

Most property sales fall when it comes to this part. The mountain of paperwork gives people cold feet, and the waiting can make you give up. Follow up your paperwork aggressively. The starter steps involve your mortgage evaluation, and the type of survey you choose could be determined by the age of the house. If it looks new, you do not need to pay extra costs for a full and detailed survey. You can do more than one survey and hire a specialist to further inspect the house in case you've got your suspicions. The point here is to avoid any surprises.

Insure and completion

Once your survey results are back, your mortgage lender will give your formalised letter to those whom it concerns and seal the deal. The next steps would be to exchange contracts with the seller, and the tip here is to insure your home immediately after. This is the point of no return, and once you cross this line, you'll be unable to go back. Insuring the house simply brings you peace of mind. Set a date for completion so that you can get the keys to your new home. If it's a long chain, set multiple dates as it may be difficult for everyone to agree on the same date.

Packing and moving

Use a registered removal company when your D day arrives, and the best ones have 'no damage guarantee'. This means that any damage to your goods is payable. Ensure your new home has got abundant telephone lines, and if it doesn't, book an installation in advance.
