Before you receive the keys to your new home, there are a few items that require your attention. No need to stress about what to do next, here’s a list of tasks your Customer Care Specialist will remind you of:
Pick up your new keys — Your lawyers will contact you when the deal is officially closed, and you can coordinate when to pick up your keys at their office.
Home Insurance — To obtain mortgage financing the lender will most likely require you to have insurance on the property, be sure to arrange this well in advance and don’t cancel your household insurance policy until the deal has closed. If you’re moving out more than 30 days before closing, you need to notify your insurer that the home will be vacant. This way, you will still be covered if anything happens in the home up to the closing date.
Utilities and cable — Have all your utility meters read on the day of closing. That way you will only be responsible for your share of utilities. Also notify your cable and telephone provider so that your service can be disconnected.
Change your address — Do your best to contact companies that send you direct mail to change your address. If you can’t remember them all, don’t worry! You can get change of address forms from the post office, and for a small charge, you can also arrange for your mail to be rerouted to your new home. Also, don’t forget to change the address on your driver’s license and other government-issued ID cards if applicable.
Don’t forget about school! — If you’re moving out of your kid’s current school zone, remember to register them at their new school and find out where and when the bus comes if necessary. It also helps to take your kids to visit their new school to ease first day nerves and to meet some of their new teachers.
