What to do before you move out
A lot of us still live in rented properties and for many of us this is the only reality we know. Sometimes some circumstances might force us to move out such as when you want to start a new job for example. Don’t be intimidated by the whole process of moving out as it is not as difficult as you might believe it to be. As a matter of fact , a whole new chapter of life awaits you and you should be definitely happy about it and ready to embrace it. Before this day comes, you might want to plan ahead so that you are ready for anything:
1. Start packing your belongings slowly a few days or even few weeks before you are to move out. This is help you to avoid all the unnecessary rush and will make you calmer and more relaxed. Don’t push everything until the last minute as new things might happen and for some reason you might not be able to finish your move on time.
2. Carefully check the house or apartment for all possible hidden items that you might have lost during your tenancy. Looking behind the sofa, check under your furniture as you might be surprised how many different things might be hiding there without you even knowing about it.
3. Make sure that you leave the property in perfect condition to get your deposit back. It is always best to leave it super clean or your landlord might not want to give your deposit back. If you don’t want to spend weeks or even months aimlessly cleaning the property on your own, hire professional end of tenancy cleaning services to do the job for you. The good thing about them is that they have a lot of professional tools that you might not have at your disposal and generally they will do a better job than you would. Trust in their experience and know that every penny you pay them will increase the chances of getting your deposit back. It will be especially important if your deposit was high such as the amount of your first monthly payment.
