Moving house is a busy time, especially when you are in the final stage of your property purchase.
To make life easier remember to get into touch with the estate agent selling the property so they can ask the owner these questions:
1.Where's the main stopcock (to shut off the water)?
2.Where are the gas and electricity meters?
3.Do any surfaces need special cleaning products, eg wooden floors?
4.What day are the bins collected?
5.Do you have any old tins of paint in the same colour as the walls?
6.Do you have any instruction manuals or warranties on electrical items?
7.Where did the kitchen and bathroom tiles come from?
8.Where did any fixed furniture come from, eg, kitchen cabinets?
9.Which company supplies the energy, broadband and home phone?
10.Where is the thermostat?
It's a lot to remember, so why not write them down (or print off this guide) and take them with you so you don't forget!

"Just to say a big thank you to you all for the excellent service you gave us throughout the sale of our house! Having Simon come to value it back in February, we took a long time to decide to put it on the market having lived there for 28 years! After many valuations later we took the decision in June to put it on the market. I knew we would choose yourselves as you have never been pushy or pestering. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone as you made it all go so well!"
