Our easy stress-free guide to moving house

Moving house is often described as being one of the most stressful things that you can do, but it needn’t be as bad as many people fear. There are a number of simple things that you can do to ensure that the process runs smoothly and without any unnecessary complications.

Moving house should be an exciting time but many new home owners find themselves worrying about the process so much that they forget how to enjoy it. A smooth move is easier to achieve with the use of professional conveyancing services and this applies whether you are buying or selling a property. While it is not a legal requirement to employ a conveyancer, it is far easier to go through the transfer of ownership titles with the support and guidance of someone who understands what is involved in the complicated and often confusing process.

You should also look online for sites with handy hints and tips, on how to make your move go through without any problems and as well as employing a conveyancer, you will also need to do the following:

  • Hire a professional removal company to ensure your belongings won’t get lost or damaged in the move
  • Pack intelligently by marking each box with information about which room it should go into, as well as what is inside
  • Make arrangements for the moving day way in advance
  • Order new furniture
  • Book time off work
  • Arrange a time for collecting keys
  • Pack a bag with essential items in for each member of the family

You will need to make sure you are organised with your move as this will help things to run smoothly. There are lots of jobs that a conveyancer will handle on your behalf and this not only saves you time, but it also saves you the hassle and worry of having to handle unfamiliar tasks. They will conduct necessary searches, collate legal paperwork, organise required checks, prepare documents, register the property and guide you through the entire process. Without this assistance, you are at risk of making a costly mistake that can also cause the process to get held up.

You can minimise the stress and hassle of moving house by employing a conveyancer to work with you through the process. By following the above tips, you can reduce the possibility of encountering problems that are relatively simple to avoid.
