Before Moving Anything Into your​ New Home
Before moving any of​ your​ belongings into your​ new home, its 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.

Ensure that any cupboards are empty, free of​ damp, mold or​ bad smells, and​ keep a​ close note of​ what where the electricity, water and​ gas stopcocks 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 .​

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 letting 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 letting, your​ landlord should also give you​ contact details, emergency repair numbers and​ any paperwork pertaining to​ these emergency repairs that you​ may need .​
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.
