Living In And Maintaining Your Home

When you move into your new home, there will be lots of things to consider other than getting your furniture, deciding where to hang that picture and what colour to paint those walls.

You need to think about paying the bills and council tax, getting home insurance, organising a phone line, keeping the house well maintained and protected. If you are new to the area, it also involves settling into your new street, town or city and getting to know your neighbours.

This section looks at the different aspects of living in and maintaining your new home, along with helpful tips to make living on your own as easy as possible.
