Contact your local council's council tax office to let them know the date you move out of your current property and when you move into your new one so they bill you correctly. You need to tell them at least 48 hours in advance that you are moving. Pass on the details of your current supplier to the people moving in. On your moving day you will need to read the meters in both properties so the correct bills can be issued.

Gazumping happens when a seller who has already accepted one buyer's offer then goes on to accept a higher offer, pushing the first buyer out of the picture. It can come about at any point before contracts are exchanged, as until the papers are signed there is no legal obligation to either buy or sell. Gazumping is a horror that estate agents are powerless to stop.

A lot of sales fall through due to time taken for the conveyancing work to be completed. You should try and find out how experienced they are, how fast they move (which is very important) and whether or not they provide regular updates. Obtain a copy of the draft contract and the title deeds from the vendor's solicitors which proves that the sellers own the property.

When working out your budget, you need to be honest and realistic about your outgoings and affordability. You also need to include conveyancing fees, stamp duty, insurance payments and premiums. It's a good idea, before you start viewing properties to draw up a list of 'must-have' criteria that are absolutely essential and not a compromise. Then draw up a list of 'luxury' criteria which would be nice to have but aren't a deal breaker if the property doesn't have them.

read more › A repayment mortgage is one where you pay off both the original loan and the interest on that loan via monthly payments to the lender. At the start of the mortgage, your monthly payments consist of mainly paying the interest and only a small amount of the original loan. The further into the mortgage term you go, the more of the loan repayment gets paid off each month so you own more of the property. An interest-only mortgage is one where you only pay the interest on the loan month by month, and still owe the lender the whole of original sum borrowed until the end of the mortgage.

The certificate includes recommendations on ways to improve the home's energy efficiency to save you money and help the environment. Part of the EPC is a recommendation report which will list the potential rating that the property could achieve, if the Landlord made changes.

read more › From now on, when you pay a deposit, your landlord or agent must protect it using a government authorised tenancy deposit scheme. At the beginning of a new tenancy agreement, pay your deposit to your landlord or agent as usual. You have a responsibility to return the property in the same condition that it was let to you, allowing for fair wear and tear. Check the circumstances in which your landlord or agent could have a claim on your deposit. You can apply to your local county court. The court can order the landlord or agent to either repay the deposit to you or protect it in a scheme.

Get the carpets, sofa covers, oven and windows cleaned and pay special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms, which need to be inviting and hygienic. Even if arranged neatly it will make your home not only appear smaller and messier, but can distract your prospective buyers, so they won't notice all the positive qualities your space has to offer.

You may find some will not allow you to let the property at all, whilst some will insist on seeing references before giving you the go ahead. You may incur a small fee before you receive permission. There can be up to two weeks delay before everything is approved so ensure you have the necessary approval before lining up a tenant.

read more › Each landlord is required to join a Government-accredited tenancy deposit protection scheme. The Tenant can apply to the Court for an order seeking repayment of the deposit, or an order compelling compliance. If you have not protected the deposit, and fail to do so, the court must order you, the landlord, to pay the tenant a fine equivalent to three times the deposit, which must be paid by you within 14 days. Also, you will lose your automatic right to regain possession of the property at the end of the tenancy, unless you have protected the deposit in a scheme and given the tenant information about how it is protected.
