Your moving day is approaching fast and you are trying to juggle work, solicitors, kids, packing etc.

Iain and Sharon will do whatever they can to try and bring calm to the process of selling or buying your new home, but still it can be easy to forget things.

The downloadable guide below will help you with some of the finer details that you may not have thought to consider.  The guide is split into a helpful timescale, starting from a month before your moving day, leading right up to the big day itself.

If there is anything Iain and Sharon can do to help you enjoy this time rather than dreading it, please contact them, they will be happy to try and help.
