Moving home can be a fiddly and complex time, and one area that can get overlooked is in moving the household and business computers. Setting up a new broadband connection, installing the internal network … both wired and wireless … can all be handled by Integrate Networks who will also make sure your new private network is protected. Integrate Networks, based in Brentwood, have assisted home owners and small businesses throughout Essex with their office and house moves for over 10 years. Find out more at www.in2go.co.uk
If you are buying a house or a flat or any type of property for that matter, you need to be sure that it is in good structural condition before you sign the purchase contract. One of the ways I can help people in that situation is to give the house a health check before they buy it. I call that health check a structural inspection. A structural inspection generally costs between £400 and £500 plus VAT.
One of the things that makes me different to other Structural Engineers is that in addition to advising the client about structural condition of the house, I can also provide advice on what can be done in terms of taking walls down or extending the house or whatever the buyer has in mind. I do not charge extra for this. It is all included in my fee.
Now considering the amount of money you are paying for the house, getting me to carry out a structural inspection is a very simple and very economical way to avoid unpleasant and sometimes very costly surprises after you’ve bought it. So if you or if any of your family or friends are in the process of moving, please let them know how important it is to have a structural inspection carried out. www.nickcooke.co.uk
Whether moving house or just getting the best deal on your mortgage, it makes sense to use an Independent Mortgage Broker who can source the whole mortgage market and find the right deal for you.
There are still over 150 lenders in the UK all offering different products and all having different criteria, and unless you have the tools and experience to search for the right deal, you will never know if you could have got something better and saved more money.
As a broker with over 20 years experience in the industry I have a wealth of experience and the best sourcing tools and contacts to make sure that the Mortgage you get is the most appropriate one for you.
I will come and see you at home at a time convenient to you and will take you through all the options available to you and recommend the best one for you. This service is free and without obligation.
All my business is based on referrals and recommendations from satisfied customers who stay loyal to me and recommend me to their friends and family because they trust the advice I give.
I specialise in helping First Time Buyers through the process of buying their first home, whilst also looking after the needs of experienced home movers and property investors alike in addition to those needing to raise extra funds.
So if you know anyone who is moving or thinking of improving his or her mortgage deal, please ask him or her to contact me. [email protected]
When selling anything in life, be it a cooker, a table or a car, most people clean and make it shine so when the potential buyer comes to look and make an offer, they see what we are selling at its best and brightest and therefore we get a quick sale at the best price. So why don’t people do the same when selling their homes?
When selling, a quick tidy and clean is not enough in this market to get the price you want. Competition is stiff and buyers are more savvy than they’ve ever been. They know what to look for so they can offer a reduced price. Old and worn decoration, broken sockets, leaking taps, things everywhere showing not enough storage – all red flags that you have probably lived with for years and just don’t notice any more. You need to take a fresh look at your home with buyers eyes and make it shine out from the rest.
Staged Moves is your buyers eyes. We can come and help you see those small things that your buyer will notice and help you put them right. From a simple consultation to helping with storage solutions or rearranging furniture, we can help you make your home stand out from the crowd.
Even when well planned, moving home can be a very stressful event and the cause of family arguments. Special relaxation techniques through hypnosis can help to smooth the process and make the transition easier to handle. Find out all you need to know at http://www.pilgrimhypnotherapy.co.uk
One of the first things potential buyers will see when they come to visit your home will be the front garden. Innmore Gardens can turn around your tired looking garden, from trimming shrubs, cutting the grass, power washing patios and paths, right through to a complete garden make over that can add thousands to the asking price of your property and increased interest in your house. Innmore Gardens can also power wash rendered houses at a fraction of the cost of re-painting. So give Innmore Gardens a call for a no obligation quote on how we can improve your garden prior to selling.
If you have just moved into your new house, your garden may be overgrown, not to your liking, or too high maintenance. Innmore Gardens can come in and completely overhaul your garden. From a grass cut through to a full garden tidy up or a complete garden make over, including patios, fencing, new lawns and low maintenance gardens. We also offer a full garden design service. So whatever you need doing in your new garden, give Innmore Gardens a call and we will arrange a no obligation visit.
When you are moving home and you find a property you are interested in, before you purchase you should ask the Vendor to confirm the house has not suffered from any previous subsidence and as far as he is aware no properties in the area have either. Whilst this may not preclude you from a purchase the insurance arrangements are more difficult. We have access to Insurers who can assist but you will need to provide additional information including a full structural engineers report. Sometimes the vendors Insurance company will agree to continue cover so it is worth asking.
Whilst packing to move it is a good opportunity to carry out a full inventory of your contents – this would be required if a claim occurs . Take photographs and value where possible as you can then check if you are properly insured and make sure all of your boxes arrive safely.
If you are using a removal company check that they are fully insured for the transit of your goods and for any damage they cause to your home. Also check with your own insurers if you are covered during the move , this is unlikely if you are changing insurers.
Visit our website www.rmkinsurance.com for more information or for insurance quotes.
Before moving it may be very prudent to make sure that your dream home hasn’t got loads of hidden problems such as Rising Damp Woodworm Condensation Penetrating Damp Leaking Gutters Internal problems of mould etc. Why not call a company with 35 years of trading to look on your behalf. It’s always better to have your eyes open before you buy. www.sterlingtimberanddamp.co.uk

When working out your budget for moving house perhaps a thought could be to allocating part of the moving budget to install Incentive driven Renewable Energy Systems. For example: For generating your own Electricity your Utility company will pay you a tax return fee on average £1250 per annum and up to £3000 for the right property. The cost of the Investment to generate your own electricity is paid for in around 8 years but you continue to get paid for 25 years. Better still this incentive is index linked so goes up with inflation each year. Now, that’s getting good use of your moving budget by not only generating a tax free income but you will be doing your bit in reducing the carbon footprint. Other technologies due for incentives later this year are Solar Thermal and Air Source Heat Pumps. For more information call an MCS approved Company.
Are you looking to purchase a House/Flat in the near future, if so then you need to be sure that the Electrics are in good order before you buy, from as little as £99 + vat we could arrange for one of our fully qualified Electricians to visit the property, we would carry out a full Test & Inspection and provide you with a certificate and a quote where necessary, It’ better to spend from £99 + vat on a test than around £2000 + vat on a full house rewire. Not only do we carry out the service but we carry out a whole range of electrical services from a simple lamp repair to a full house rewire. At the Electrical Shop we not only sell electrical items but also have over 400 lights on display for you to view before you buy.
