Once you have found a new home and your offer has been accepted, you are on your way to moving day! This is the time to start planning and preparing to ensure that your house move goes as smoothly as possible.
First of all, you will need to find a conveyancing solicitor who will be able to help you with the legal side of your move. As well as all of the legal documentation that is part of a house move, you also will need to have surveys done on the property to look for things like structural damage to it.
You also will need to have a plan for moving day. The day itself can be busy, so plan out all the things that you will need to do. It can be helpful to hire a professional moving company in your local area – search online for removal companies Bristol for example and companies like this www.get-moved.co.uk/ will come up who will be able to help you with your move.
If you are planning to do the moving yourself, you may need to hire a larger vehicle like a box van to make sure that you can get everything in in as few trips as possible.
You will need to let various people know that you are moving too – places like the bank, the DVLA and also utilities companies all need to be aware of the fact that you are moving house, so make a list and contact them all.
