Safety and Security After The Sale

So, your move is over and you have unpacked the many boxes and are arranging furniture and such.  Now is a great time to do a safety and security check of your new Lancaster County home.

Here’s a checklist to get you started:

  • Check your home for loose floorboards and/or tiles
  • Check the smoke alarms. Are there smoke alarms on each floor? Put fresh batteries in each smoke alarm when you move in.
  • Check all handrails. Are they secure and sturdy?
  • Put all of your transaction records in a safe place where you can easily access them for tax time, etc. These records probably include:- Closing documents and any loan papers
    – Property deed
    – Warranty information
    – Repair receipts and home improvement receipts
    – Insurance policies

    Taking care of these details right when you move in will ease your stress and make settling into your new home a much more smooth, easy and enjoyable process:)  Click the picture above for a checklist you can print out.
