Buying a new home and moving is one of the most exciting times in your life and for many people, the new year is a perfect time to make the move. However, it can also be a stressful experience and there are lots of things you need to know. This is why we have compiled a list of all the things you need to consider when moving home in 2022.
The first thing you need to do when you are buying a new home and moving is to be prepared. You should make sure that all of your finances are in order and be prepared for additional costs. It is important to remember that buying a new home and moving consists of more than just the deposit and mortgage, including, Surveys, Stamp Duty, Solicitors fees and removals.
Before putting an offer in on a home, one of the things you should consider is getting a mortgage in principle. When you apply for one, the lender will check your credit and finances to establish whether you’re eligible to borrow from them. This will give both you and the seller the reassurance that the lender is willing to lend you the money. There are various other benefits to this such as showing the seller that you are a serious buyer and giving you an idea of the amount you can afford to borrow.
One of the best ways to reduce the stress of moving home is to create a moving checklist, this will ensure that you have everything prepared for your move. This includes packing, which companies you will need to notify about your move and updating addresses. You can also include the final checks you will need to do on the day of your move.
Another top tip is to ensure that you manage your expectations. This is relevant to both when you are searching for a new property and when you are moving home. The moving process can take a considerable amount of time, particularly since the start of the pandemic due to the high volume of people moving.
One of the most important things to consider when moving home in 2022 is choosing a qualified conveyancing solicitor. Moving home is an exciting yet stressful time, and your conveyancing solicitor should help alleviate some of that stress. As well as this they should look to ensure that the property you are buying does not cause any unforeseen issues or title related problems that may affect your ownership.
