Moving House Does Not Have to Stress You Out

  • Posted on

Moving house comes at the top of the most stressful things to do in life, according to a recent poll, ahead of divorce and starting a new job.

Based on adults who have moved within the past three years, the E.ON research found that almost 61% of those polled placed it top of the stress list.

YouTubers are quick to point out tips to make moving home easier, but one of the best ways to achieve a stress-free move is to appoint a professional firm.

“Choosing the wrong firm could add hundreds of pounds to your bill, slow the process down and even in some cases derail the whole process,” warned Sarah Major, conveyancing executive at Pearson Solicitors.

“Moving house can be a bit of a juggling act as most people are buying and selling at the same time, so the whole process can be daunting,” she added.

Most people do not realise what is involved and as Sarah points out the right conveyancing firm will:

  • Conduct searches thoroughly review and investigate the title, raise enquires with the other side, liaise with Land Registry, manage stamp duty and the collection of funds, draw up contracts, register change of ownership and a whole host of other tick points along the way to completion.

“Buying a home is the biggest purchase we will ever make and should be a positive experience.  Only a reliable residential property firm will ensure a smooth move for all concerned,” said Sarah.
