Address Change

Wednesday, 16 August 2017

Sometimes the last thing on your mind when moving is letting your doctor know, but it's an important step to make sure everything stays seemless! Here are other locations to make sure you notify when you move! Full article: https://blog.rent.com/change-of-address-who-to-tell/

 

Utility Companies

This one can be easy to forget. Especially during the hustle and bustle of your move. However, it is important to let the utility companies know you have moved. They will need to take your name off of your accounts, and send you a final bill.

Department of Motor Vehicles

If you just moved across town, you don’t have make a special trip down to the DMV.  You can change your address online once the dust settles from your move. You typically have between 30-60 days (depending on your state) to let the DMV know of your address change. You don’t want to be late on this, so you are not subject to fines.

The Bank

Why does the bank need your address? Everything is on-line? When you have to make a withdrawal, the bank will want to see your ID. If your address does not match their records it may be more difficult for you to access your funds. Checks are not nearly as popular as they once were. But those would need to be updated too.

What Tools Do You Need in Your Rental?

Monday, 14 August 2017

You aren't expected to make any major repairs in your property, but it would still be helpful to have a couple small tools in your property! These are what Rent.com suggests. Article at: https://blog.rent.com/small-tool-kit-needs/

 

Hammer

If you’re hanging pictures or need to repair your coffee table, you will need a hammer and nails. If you’re putting together a bookshelf or entertainment center, this is also a necessity. (Fact of life: lots of inexpensive furniture requires assembly). Your hammer has many other uses too, according to family handy man.

Hot Tip: When it comes to hanging pictures, be sure to double-check your lease. If there’s a clause that states you can’t put holes in the wall, there are alternatives, such as adhesive strips and adhesive hooks.

Measuring Tape

You want to make sure furniture will fit through the door. You’ll need a measuring tape to measure the door frame and your furniture. You don’t want to damage your apartment before you make your first rent payment. A measuring tape also comes in handy for hanging pictures or measuring for rugs.

Level

A level will help you hang your pictures straight, and assemble your furniture properly.

Pencil

An old adage says, “Measure twice, cut once.” You’ll want to have a pencil with you to know where to cut your boards if you’re making shelves or where to put your hardware for hanging anything. A hardware store sells carpenters pencils which are flat and easy to use.
