House Movers Plymouth – Advice on Packing

Moving house is an excellent time to sort through your possessions and dispose of anything you don’t need. Start the packing process early; it always takes much longer than you think! As a guide, allow two months for larger houses and one month for smaller homes.

Pack one room at a time; starting with the rooms you use least. Make sure you list what is in each box and label it to tell the movers where it should go on arrival. Pack heavy things at the bottom and fragile items on top, using plenty of packing materials. Do not exceed a weight of 13 kilograms per box or you may cause injury when lifting them, remember to pack light items in larger boxes and heavy things in small boxes.

House Movers Plymouth – Advice for Finding a Removal Company

Unless you really have only a very few possessions, it is always best to instruct a professional removal company to help you move house. There are a large variety of companies that can provide a house removal service. However, it is always advisable to choose a company that is a member of BAR (The British Association of Removers).
By choosing a BAR Member, it will ensure everything goes to plan and you will have the added peace of mind that comes from using a reputable and professional house removal company.

In the unlikely event that something does go wrong, you will have someone to turn to help sort out any issues. A BAR member is easily recognised by their membership badge. When choosing a house removal company, check that they have this badge displayed on their website and all documentation.

Buying a Property : Legals

Once you have found a new home and your offer has been accepted, you will need to arrange various things in order for everything to progress. Firstly, you will need to select a conveyancing solicitor, as it is essential to get the legal side in place early on, to ensure a smooth legal transaction of your property sale and purchase. You will also need to organise for a survey to be conducted on the property you are purchasing.

House Movers Plymouth : Advice on Conveyancing

Once you have found a new home and your offer has been accepted, you will need to instruct a solicitor to look after the house conveyance.

Conveyancing describes the legal transfer of property from seller to buyer. How long it takes depends on several things, such as how many people are involved in the chain. This can be done quickly in a number of weeks or it may take some months to complete. Once you have chosen your solicitor, they will examine the draft contract and supporting documents and raise enquiries with the seller’s solicitor.

They will also carry out local authority searches to ensure there is nothing that you do not know about, such as a planned new housing estate at the bottom of your garden. The solicitor will also check the ‘title register’ and ‘title plan’ at the Land Registry– these are the legal documents, which prove the seller’s ownership. They can also arrange an ‘Environmental Search’ if you require this to be carried out. This report will give information about contaminated land at or around the property, landfill sites, former and current industry, detailed flooding predictions, ground stability issues and radon gas hazard.

House Movers Plymouth : Advice on Property Surveys

It is always advisable to instruct a surveyor to carry out a property survey before you conclude the purchase of your new home. They can often predict issues based on the condition of the property externally, such as missing roof tiles, rotten windows and subsidence.

An internal inspection despite limitations should be able to identify major issues such as rising damp, water ingress, woodworm and beetle infestation.

The survey should be able to outline any major repairs or alterations needed such as roof or chimney stack repairs, or if the property requires rewiring. They will also be able to give a valuation of the property for mortgage purposes.

Most qualified surveyors are members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and it is recommended that you use a RICS qualified surveyor, as they will also carry professional indemnity insurance. If you are able to instruct a local surveyor, they are likely to have a better knowledge of local market values.

It is well worth taking some time to research the facilities and amenities of your new area. Here is a list of professional services in the Plymouth area.
