Moving House Hassle Free: Springbok Properties Guide to the Key Issues Homeowners Need to Know
Third only to death and divorce in terms of the root cause of unhappiness, moving house can prompt tensions to boil, mounting stress-levels and friction between homeowners. Yet, the average British resident will move house eight times in their lifetime.
Springbok Properties understands the strain moving house can put on relationships. In previous articles, we’ve covered checklists when moving house and guides on how to prepare your home for sale.
However, just as we know how to sell any property in the UK fast for 99% of its true market value, we pride ourselves in the transparent and helpful service we offer all our customers and have completed this shorty guide on moving house hassle free.
Who to Notify When Moving House
As with any life-changing decision, the more planning homeowners do when moving house the better. BBC Homes can help homeowners complete a list of every task that will need to be completed when moving house.
The most important parties to notify are banks, credit card companies, pension and share providers, your insurance agent, any loan providers, your local council, employers and school, utilities providers, and the doctors.
Remember to switch off utilities before moving house and then arrange to have then switched on once you take possession of your new home. If you’re looking for a new provider, U Switch allows you to compare deals and switch in just a few clicks!
Another great online resource is I am Moving. Once registered, homeowners can change their address with ease, notifying over 1500 organisations!

The Importance of Fact Files When Moving House
When moving house, fact files can be a godsend. With so much to remember and organise, having to invest precious time researching how you switch utilities providers, for example, can be an unnecessary nuisance.
Therefore, fact files can be so important when moving house, and they can be easily compiled in the year’s homeowners spend living in their home.
A good fact file will answer all the questions that you rarely think to ask. Where the fuse box is, how to reset the alarm, details of the neighbourhood rubbish and recycling collections, local tradesmen, and any other useful services can come in handy, even when moving house.
Why not create a folder and colour code information for ease of accessibility? This will save a great deal of time in the event of an emergency, and be most welcome when organising your house move.
Not only that but, once you’ve sold your property and are moving house, your fact files will prove to be a great help to the new occupants of your home, and if mentioned at the point of sale, may even seal the deal with buyers.
Having exchanged contracts on over 2400 properties in the last 12 months alone, Springbok Properties is expertly placed to advise homeowners on how to create a checklist when moving house.

Give Yourself a Deadline to Manage Everything You Need to When Moving House
The importance of setting deadlines when moving home cannot be overstated. Setting actual deadlines to complete everything that needs to be taken care of when moving house is a valuable way to ensure that homeowners enjoy a hassle-free moving experience.
Having deadlines when moving house will help throughout each stage of the process. It may become quite difficult to arrange a mortgage whilst your belongings are being put into storage and quite impossible whilst a removals company is in the process of emptying your home!
Similarly, if you have agreed a moving in date with buyers and don’t set any deadlines then your move may well be thrown into complete chaos!
