Relocating to/in Ottawa
You bought a new home in Ottawa and you have to move. This can be
frustrating for the new homebuyer. To make this part easier develop
a checklist of all the things that will be required to make the move.
Below are some considerations.
Book the movers:
You can choose to have the movers pack everything, or just the breakables,
or you can pack yourself. It's a good idea to obtain estimates from
several different companies.
If you own your present home:
Arrange to have your gas, water, and electric meters read on the
day you leave and have the bills forwarded to your new address.
Have your oil tank read and filled before your sale closes, and provide
a receipt to your legal professional if required.
If the water heater or furnace is rented, arrange for
a transfer of the rental agreement to the purchaser.
Disconnect your telephone, cable TV, and water softener.
If you rent your present home:
Give necessary written notice to your landlord and make
arrangements for the return of any monies you have on deposit.
