Before you move
Book the movers. You can choose to have the movers pack everything, or just the breakables, or you can pack yourself. It's a good idea to obtain estimates from several different companies.
If you own your present home
- Arrange to have our gas, water, and electric meters read on the day you leave and have the bills forwarded to your new address.
- Have your oil tank read and filled before your sale closes, and provide a receipt to your legal professional if required.
- If the water heater or furnace is rented, arrange for a transfer of the rental agreement to the purchaser.
- Disconnect your telephone, cable TV, and water softener.
If you rent your present home
- Give necessary written notice to your landlord and make arrangements for the return of any monies you have on deposit.
At your new home
- Make arrangements for the gas and electric utilities, water softener, telephone and cable TV to be connected on the day the sale closes.
