Residential Sales and Lettings - Check list for moving within the UK or out of the UK or to the UK from overseas

A short list of helpful hints for those who are renting or buying

If you are moving out of a property:

  • Make sure you arrange to have your mail redirected. Pick up the special form from the Post Office.
  • Pay all outstanding home bills, such as milk, newspapers or window cleaner.
  • Don't forget the gardener or domestic help if you have them.
  • On the day of the move make arrangements for young children - it may be best to organise a babysitter for the day.
  • Look after your pets by using proper pet-carrying boxes for them to travel in. The RSPCA sells low cost cardboard carrying cases for cats and puppies.

If you are moving into a property:

  • Check how everything works in your new home, especially the central heating boiler and alarm systems and where things like fuse boxes and stopcocks are.
  • Get the seller (if buying) to give you details about guarantees, contracts and instructions for appliances and fittings. (If you are renting ask the Landlord or agent for the relevant information).
  • Confirm the time that you can pick up your new keys. This is usually after 12.30 pm on the day of completion. Remember that most conveyancers don’t work Saturdays and they will also want to be able to check if the funds have been satisfactorily transferred. 
  • Arrange a time with the previous owners when you can move in – you don’t want to arrive before they’ve moved out!

  • If you are moving into rented accommodation check the move in details with the Landlord or letting agent. It is quite normal to be met at the property by a representative from an inventory company who will check you and take meter readings and release the keys to you.

  • Send out your change of address cards. Why not combine them into invitations for a housewarming party and of course invite your new neighbours as well!
