You should reasonably expect the home into which you’re moving to be cleared, clean and without additional damage.

You may also like to think about writing a clause into the contract that money will only be released after a cursory inspection of the premises to confirm that you are happy. This needs to be agreed with the seller’s solicitor, but the expectation is already raised. Beware that, in the chaos of the moving day, you can’t afford to delay things too much, so it’s a fine balance.
