MAKING THE MOVE...
  • paragraph

    Preparing for the move ahead
    Careful organisation and forward planning can minimise the stress of moving house. It feels like there are a million and one things to do when arranging a house move, but with a bit of organisation you can reduce the job into manageable chunks.
  • paragraph

    Eight weeks to go

    Even though a sale might not be set in stone, it's still worth getting prepared well in advance.

    Firstly make sure your new accommodation is sorted, ensure you have a mortgage in principle and solicitor lined up.

    Check out removal firms, get quotes and check what their insurance covers. They may not cover what you have packed yourself. If you have any high value items, make sure insurance covers these, speak to an expert if you're unsure of an items value. Obtain at least 3 quotes, and check references.

    If you're not using professional removals, now will be the time to start notifying friends and family you might need their help, especially if you have children and pets.

    Start emptying your existing property of clutter, don't take what's not needed or has little emotional value, don't forget your attic/loft which may contain more than you think. Consider hiring a skip. Also start using up and emptying your food stocks from your larder, fridge and freezer.

    Collect appropriate material for packing, boxes, newspaper, bags etc.

  • paragraph

    Six weeks to go

    The sale should be more certain, and you should have a good idea when the move will take place.

    You should have finished decluttering, now you'll have an idea if you need any additional storage space. Your chosen removal firm will probably be able to help, but it could be cheaper to source your own storage space.

    If you're renting you'll need to notify your landlord of your moving date.

    Order essential items for your new home, such as carpets or new furniture.

    Check your home insurance covers you from the moment you enter your new home.

    With a firm date in mind, confirm which friends and family will be able to help.

  • paragraph

    Four weeks to go

    Exchange of contracts is now imminent and things are progressing.

    Double check moving date, as everything needs to be coordinated.

    Get all items to be moved organised. Draw up a floor plan and label or colour code every room. All boxes can then be labelled or coded appropriately, so the removals company or helping friends know which room a box belongs in.

    Other insurance policies, ensure all policies you may have (life, medical, motor, pets) have been notified of the new address and move date.

    Notify all service providers - Electricity, Gas, Water, Phone, Internet, Cable/Satellite TV

    Notify relevent government agencies - Council Tax, Benefits, TV License, Schools / Colleges

    Notify your place of work of your new address.

    If required, you may wish to book a lock smith to change the locks on your new home.

  • paragraph

    Two weeks to go

    Actually disassembling your home now begins.

    You should have received your moving date from your solicitors, if not check and find out when.

    If you're packing yourself, start now with all non-essential items - books, ornaments, clothes, toys. Remember to mark the boxes according to your labelled/colour coded plan.

    Notify all friends and family of your new address, either by mail or online.

    Arrange the time to collect the keys to your new home from the estate agents, then double check your booking details with your removals company.

    Notify all appropriate financial bodies, banks and credit card companies.

    Stop all regular deliveries, such as milk or newspapers. Ensure all postal deliveries are received by putting a redirect in place with the post office at least 5 days before the move.

    Notify other organisations such as Doctors and Dentists, also non-essential organisations such as gym memberships, charities, internet mail order companies etc.

  • paragraph

    One day to go

    The big day has almost arrived, besides last minute packing there's a few other things you can do that will make the day go smoother.

    Pack a box with kitchen essentials - kettle, cups, cutlery, tea, coffee and milk. Will you be able to cook? Perhaps think about getting some takeaway menus for when you get peckish. Don't forget a few glasses and a bottle opener in case you want to celebrate.

    A bag of essentials for each member of the family, change of clothes, toiletries, towels, bedding and any medication.

    If friends or family are looking after children or pets during the move, confirm times when they will be collected or dropped off.

    Assemble a box of cleaning products and a vaccuum cleaner. You may have time to give the house a clean before all the boxes and furniture arrive and fill up your new home.

    Make a list of all import numbers on paper or on a mobile phone. If you're using your mobile make sure it's fully charged. Consider having a tradesmen directory to hand (such as the Yellow Pages), you never know if you might need a plumber or electrician.

    Decide what tools you made need for the task of unpacking or re-assembling furniture - screwdrivers, allen keys, stanley knives, tape.

    Defrost the freezer

    Put all valuable items and documents in a safe place.

      listened  followed my instructions precisely
      Anne, Dawn and Simon gave a professional yet personal service. More importantly for me, you listened and followed my instructions precisely which helped pave a smooth transition for what can often be a stressful transaction. Following through post transaction, it seems your aftercare given to our purchasers has been exemplary for which I am sure they are grateful. I would recommend your services to others.

      professional, efficient and friendly approach
      'My decision to use the estate agent services of Lovelle's, Horncastle branch, has proven to be an excellent choice. Simon and his team have made the entire process pain and stress free which was most definitely appreciated. They were helpful and professional throughout and made a point of keeping me informed and up to date with the progress at regular intervals. The sale process went through without a hitch and I feel that this is largely due to their professional, efficient and friendly approach, which was evident from the start. I would heartily recommend their services!'
    • Seller Testimonial

      polite and professional manner
      Thank you to Anne, Dawn and Simon at Lovelle Estate Agents in Horncastle. They were all very helpful and patient throughout the process of selling and buying my property. Simon took excellent photos of my property. Any issues I came across they were quick to sort it in a polite and professional manner. I would highly recommend Lovelles to anyone considering selling a property. I also used David, Lovelle's mortgage advisor he was helpful and would update me regularly.
    • Seller Testimonial

      sensitivity and professionalism throughout
      Dear Simon, Anne and Dawn
      Having met with representatives from four local estate agents, I have never once regretted choosing Lovelles. 
      The necessity of having to sell my parents' home following the death of my father has been met with sensitivity and professionalism throughout. From carefully thought -out marketing strategies, to being kept informed of progress (and problems), I had confidence that you were working hard to secure the best possible outcome. 
      I would not hesitate to recommend Lovelles and should the time come to sell my own home, I shall certainly be banging on your door. Kindest regards and Best Wishes

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      we were kept up to date
      "Lovelle Estate Agency have handled the purchase of our new home professionally and courteously, without any issues whatsoever. Our purchase was a little more complicated as we are remote buyers, but during the transaction we were kept up to date with progress; both by e-mail and telephone, giving much comfort throughout what could otherwise have been a very stressful time - our thanks so to Anne, Dawn, and Simon"
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Nothing was too much trouble
      Dear Anne,

      We just completed on the purchase of our bungalow at the beginning of October, 8 weeks after the agreed sale.

      We were very happy with the way we were guided through the process by all of the staff at Lovelle's, being quite unfamiliar with buying a property as it was something that I last did 25 years ago. They were very accommodating when we asked questions and needed to view the property. Nothing was too much trouble and although there were a few taxing times dealing with the solicitors there were no major problems.

      We wouldn't hesitate to use Lovelle's in the future and to recommend the company to friends as the company is very professional and approachable. They seem to be coming on leaps and bounds in Lincolnshire despite the internet poaching customers with cheap deals.

      Thank you for your help, and the gift of a bottle of wine to celebrate was a lovely gesture.

      Many thanks, H & R M
    • Buyer Testimonial

      A pleasant experience
      Dear Simon

      Having recently bought a property through Lovelle Estate Agency, I would like to thank you and your team for always giving me prompt attention when I called at the office and for answering my telephone calls promptly and politely. I would thank you too for keeping viewing appointments on time and for giving me updates at all stages throughout the transaction.

      A pleasant experience from my first enquiry to completion and beyond.

      The 'new home pack' was also a pleasant surprise, a nice touch.

      I would and will recommend you and your services to others.

      Kind regards

      A P

      Thank you again to all at Lovelle Estate Agency in Horncastle.
