Before Completion

Before your move, there are various things which we do, and various things you need to do. We will:

You need to:

  • Inform the relevant utility suppliers of your change of address and the date on which you’ll be moving
  • Take your meter readings for your current property on the completion day

There are a couple of things which you also need to be aware of before completion:

  • Don’t make a booking for your removals until we have confirmed exchange of contracts to you – otherwise you may incur a cancellation fee if dates change
  • Try to book your removals for slightly later in the day – you will not be able to get access to your new home until the seller’s lawyer has received the completion money and depending on the bank system that can take a couple of hours
  • If you’re moving out of rented accommodation then don’t give Notice to Quit until exchange of contracts has taken place
