    Finally exchanged ...moving this Friday 20th Mar 17 at 9:01 AM
    Hi peps

    I've been a lunker for a while just reading all posts I've have learnt a lot from this site. Thank you.

    After waiting a long time to exchange it's finally here!!! I'm so nervous and excited about moving into my own house after living in my family house with my mum who sadly passed away last year. It's been a really tough few years as in a space of 6 months 3 years ago I lost both grandads and my dad all suddenly death's.


    I have find a lovely house that ticks all the boxes. I'll am getting a removaly company in to move as it's going to be a emotional day and stressful.

    Now need to work though the list of jobs that need doing before !!

    Any tips would be greatfull.

    Thanks

    Sort out energy early on. You will be a deemed customer with whoever the house is currently with but you can change if you wish. Good idea to take photos of the meter readings when you move in.
