5 Things to consider while relocating to a new house
1. Inspect the House
The house may be newly built by yourself, bought from a builder or an old one purchased from an individual seller. In any case, you may carry out a thorough inspection of the property. You may take your spouse along. Check every nook and corner and confirm that everything is fixed perfectly. And leftover building material is not lying unattended that may turn hazardous to children.
2. Cleaning of the House
Clean the house thoroughly to remove the remnants of painting and construction. Dust, drops of paint and other substances used during construction and painting should be removed. Then, use a disinfectant liquid and remove the possible antigens and germs. Cleaning this way will be necessary so that your kids can play around freely. Otherwise, you may be concerned about their health inhaling the paint particles of possible germs.
3. Finalize the Position for Furniture
You should not move the furniture and other equipment to the property and then think about the position for each. Plan the location for each of the items including cupboards, shelves, table, sofa set, television, and computer and so on. Avoid confusion and last-minute hurry burry. Moreover, shifting the items without any plan will just add to the confusion.
4. Address Change
Don’t forget to change your address in all the official and unofficial documents. Most of the important mail is dispatched to the permanent address. Hence, don’t delay the requisite amendment process. It is always good to do the needful in time. This will be of paramount importance if you have relocated to a new state. Then, re-registration of your vehicle, replacement of license and such important formalities will require NOC from the origin state. Hence, it is crucial to put up an application for the necessary changes.
5. Visit the Neighbours
Man is a social animal. You must have a cordial relation with the neighbours. In addition, it is good to know about the people around you, their profession, the educational institution where their children are studying and other matters.
Relocating to a new house for the first time?
Relocating to a new house, for the first time, is not a complicated thing as you think if you have done the planning well. Let’s see the basic things to look into whilst relocating to a new house.
1. Reputation of Movers and Packers
Assign the packing and moving task only to a genuine service agency. They may charge a bit higher than a local team. However, they will shift the items carefully, ensuring the utmost safety.
2. Disconnect the Services from the Old House
The services will include the internet, electricity, and cable service etcetera. Nowadays, a simple email is sufficient for the companies to act on it. Call them and tell them or visit the office if necessary.
3. Arrange Items
You can segregate items depending on the rooms those belong to. You don’t have to do it. Rather ask the moving guys to do it.
4. Mark the Contents on Each Box
Ask the movers and packers to mark the content of the box. Thereby, you don’t have to open each box for confirming the content inside. And can direct the team itself to keep the boxes to the rooms (kitchen, bedroom etc.) where those items will be kept.
5. Clean the Old Home
Don’t forget to clean the old house. It’s not advisable to handover a dirty house to the owner or to the new tenant.
