Preparing Your Home For The New Owner

It is very helpful if you prepare a briefing sheet for the new owner. This should include how to operate the boiler and alarm, the location of the meters, fuse box and stopcock, and any other information. 

You could either label all keys or leave them in the lock that they operate. Don't forget shed and garage keys, or those for the window locks. 

It's a good idea to ask – or have it as part of your purchase agreement – that the person you are buying from does the same.

If you need a tradesperson you can trust, give us a call as we have a whole network of reliable trades people we can recommend.

What do I need to do after I've moved?

There are a few loose ends with your new property that usually need to be tied up as soon as you've completed your move. 

If your property cost more than £125,000 (or £300,000 as a first-time buyer) you'll have to pay your stamp duty bill within 30 days. 

Also, get a locksmith to change the locks so your household has a unique set of keys.
