So, you’ve found the house of your dreams, and have moved in, there are however a few more things you still need to do;

Update your address

Before moving, you will probably have notified your friends and family of your new address, along with any utility providers. However, generally speaking, once you have actually moved into the new house, there will be a few additional people you still need to contact. Here are a few suggestions;

  • TV Licencing
  • Doctors/Hospitals
  • Dentists
  • Opticians
  • Vets/Pet care clinics
  • Insurance Companies
  • Work (HR)

Think about security

The area of security can be overlooked following a busy and perhaps stressful house move, and yet, it is a vital requirement. Think about the house locks. Is there any chance that anyone other than you and your family could have keys to the house? If you are at all unsure, think about having the locks changed. It can be relatively inexpensive, and can provide great peace of mind. Also think about getting additional locks fitted if you think they are required. Check all of the windows, to make sure that they are safe and secure, and add window locks if necessary. If you have a little extra money in your budget, invest in a security camera. There are a wide range of cameras available to suit any house.

Meet the neighbours

Once you have moved in, and are settled, it is time to meet the neighbours! Don’t wait for them to make introductions, pop around and introduce yourself. Remember, when you are on holiday, it is the neighbours who keep an eye on your property, and vice-versa, so establish good relations as quickly as possible. You don’t have to constantly be in touch with your neighbours, but you making the effort should be appreciated. Use the introduction as an opportunity to ask any questions you may have, for example, which day is the rubbish collected, and which window cleaner do they use?

Explore the new area

Take a walk or drive around the new area, to familiarize yourself with your new surroundings. Find out where your local shops and supermarkets are, and ask local shop owners for information about opening hours. If you are changing doctors or opticians, find out where they are located, and if you need to register, ask about any forms you may need. Also find out about the local social scene, visit libraries or information centres to find out about local cinemas, pubs, clubs, restaurants, leisure centres and social groups.
