Moving into your new home can be exciting, stressful and overwhelming all at the same time. Whether you are moving into your first home as a first-time-buyer or you have regularly moved home, there are bound to be stress points along the way.
Our Property Law Team at Lamb Brooks are regularly speaking to homeowners at various points of their sale or purchase and have put together a few of their tips and ideas for how to make ‘moving day’ a little less stressful.
It is also a good idea to keep aside a box of ‘essential items’ that you may need during the chaos of moving or before you unpack all your boxes. You don’t want to be rummaging around for something in a panic! This box should travel with you on your first trip to the new house.
Items for your ‘Essentials Box’
Every family will have slightly different ideas of what is essential to them, but here are some ideas to get you started. Phone chargers, tea bags, kettle, small carton of milk, bottles of water or soft drinks, snacks, medication, inhalers, plasters, important documents / identification documents, allen keys, screwdriver, lightbulbs, pet food, pen and paper, money, contact details of your solicitors and estate agents, paper plates, mugs and spoons. If you have children – it is useful to pack a changing bag, change of clothes, dummies, calpol, some toys or books and a blanket.
The First Night in your New Home
You are in! It’s time to enjoy your new home. You are likely to still be surrounded in boxes, perhaps some of your new furniture hasn’t arrived yet and you still have plenty to sort out. But for now, relax and take a moment to rest after a day of being on your feet. Forget about cooking, your kitchen ware is all over the place and you don’t know how to set up the cooker! Order in a takeaway, use paper plates and drink from cans for your first night – refuel ready to go again the next day.
