Let's Move!

Congratulations! You've bought your new home but now what?

The possession date for your new home is getting closer so let's make sure no important tasks fall to the wayside. I've created this post to give you a collection of resources to make moving to your new home as seamless as possible.

Schedule a time to meet with your lawyer

To sign paper work and go over any additional information you may need.

Change your address

Contact any companies that you buy from online or deal with regularly and when in doubt contact Canada Post to file a change of address and to organize mail forwarding.

Home Insurance

Your lawyer will need confirmation of insurance for the purchase of your home so make sure that the insurance company sends them the information.


Don't know all the answers to the questionnaire? As your agent for help.

Schedule a final walk through

You and your Realtor® need to verify that the home is in the same state as when you purchased the property.

Book you movers!

Moving companies book up quickly so make sure you get it organized sooner rather than later.
