Should I change the locks after I move in?
It would be a wise move to replace the locks upon moving into your new home, for peace of mind if nothing else. Although you may have received a number of copies of the keys, you may not know accurately whether that bunch constitutes every copy.
Although changing the locks will be an extra cost, you may find that buildings insurance may look on the move favourably, too.

What do I get for my money from an estate agent?
A good estate agent will be able to bring their local knowledge into your transaction and reduce the amount of stress you might experience as part of the whole moving experience.
Although it might seem that agents do very little for their clients, they will help you set the sale price for your home by using their knowledge of similar properties, a large part will involve marketing your home by expressing it in its best light online and through fliers, phone calls and emails, etc., they will conduct viewings with ay interested potential buyers, manage the negotiations on the offers as they come in and, by law, they will also have to take all necessary steps to ensure the buyer is serious about entering into the contract to purchase the property when an offer is made.
However good you believe your chosen estate agent to be, you should take time to read through the terms and conditions thoroughly to understand what you’re paying them and what you’re going to get for your money.
