Power and Phone
Arrange for your power and phone to be disconnected on the settlement date.
You are required by law to change the address on your driver’s licence and the Electoral Role as soon as you move! If you notify the Department of Transport, they can update your address on your vehicle registration. Don’t forget your doctor, Medicare, Bank, Council pet registrations and Superannuation.
You should locate all house, shed, garage and other keys relating to the property and label them. Prior to settlement, ensure that you have provided all of your keys to the agent or Legal Solutions so they are available to the Purchaser once settlement has completed.
