The Essentials When Moving into a New Property to Let


The hard work is over. You’ve searched for, found, and signed on a new property to let, so you’re all set, right? The first part of your moving journey is sorted out, but now comes the settling in! After packing and unpacking all of your possessions, you might find that you are in need of a few things to make your new rental property feel like a home. Do you know what it is that’s missing, and that’s robbing your new rental property from that “at home” feeling?


If you find that you haven’t thought of everything you will need to settle in nicely and comfortably in your new home, then don’t worry. Check out our handy checklist below for advice on what you might be missing. It might just be something small, but it can make all the difference when wanting to turn a rental property into a home.


#1 The Essentials


When moving, the universal thing everyone needs is plastic bags. You can’t ever have enough plastic bags for all the kitchen appliances, plastic containers, curtains, linen, clothing, and odds and ends. Consider packing an “essentials” bag to get you and your family sorted out for the first week after your move, so that you don’t need to rush with unpacking at the new place.


Consider adding the following to your essentials bag:


  • Clothes for the upcoming week
  • Toothbrush, toothpaste, and mouthwash
  • Towels, shampoo, and soap
  • Charger and other electronics


You might be surprised how much this bag ends up helping you through your first week.


#2 Household Cleaning Products


Even though you may be moving into a recently cleaned property to let, one rarely feels comfortable about the hygiene levels in one’s home unless you take care of its initial cleaning yourself. If you feel it will comfort you to do so, then stock up on household cleaning products. Vital home cleaning products, like all-purpose cleaners, cloths, and sponges will come in handy.


#3 Organisers and Storage Bins


One thing is for sure – you can never have too many storage bins and organisers when trying to make sense of chaos. Once all the boxes have been offloaded, you’ll need to pack them out. You’ll have so much to pack away.

If you’ve rented one of the smaller properties to let in the city, it’s even more important to use space as efficiently as possible. It’s also important to find what you need, and to do so quickly. It’s far too easy to feel like the task is a never-ending one and get stuck in a rut.
