Before You Move Into Your Home

Topic: Construction

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.

Yes this is great information and recrnofies a good work ethic will ensure that everyone in the business where there is some risk will conduct themselves appropriately. The importance of quality procedures cannot be underestimated and also an element of employees accepting responsibility for their behaviors. As far as compensation for loss of income I would have thought the contractor would have insurance that would protect him and his staff from loss should an accident occur.

Excellent article, wrteitn in wonderful brevity. Tim, you hit the nail right on the head. Litigators should stick to their guns and not reinvent the wheel. But, its important to understand the new caveats to these types of claims. Thanks for the post.Douglas Reiser recently posted..

Good points. I think that the coommn trend in homebuying couples is for the woman/wife to ultimately pick the house. And many women prefer to deal with another woman. Men usually just want something in their price range that has a garage and keeps their wife happy.
