Well I'm 21, and have just recently purchased my first property, all thats left now is this 6 week settlement period, then its time for me to move in. For those of you who are interested, its a unit situated in Caringbah, which is in the Sutherland shire. The location in my opinion is great, its literally across the road from a coles, a 5 minute stroll from the train station, and minutes away from Cronulla beach, and a massive Miranda westfields. It has 2br, a small study/dining room, as well as a shared lock up garage. I paid $228,000 fro the place, and can probably fetch $275-$300pw in rent once I fix it up a little bit. Heres a few more details and some pictures; http://www.domain.com.au/Public/PropertyDetails.aspx?adid=2006946152 Anyway, im a first home buyer, and have never moved out of home, so generally I'm not to sure on where I stand now as far as moving into the property is concerned, and setting things up, so I have a few basic questions; 1. Electricity - Who do I go to? And am I entitled to get it set up now, or do I have wo wait until the 6 weeks is up? Is the right thing to do, call them now, and organise for them to hook it up the day of settlement, or day after? Edit: I had a bit of a look about.. And it looks like I should all the Electicity company and organise to have them hook it up on the day of settlement..? 2. Am I at all entitled to start moving anything into the property? I'm under the impression that I can't, and that the property is legally still theirs until the settlement date, but just checking. 3. Are there any general small things you do when moving into a new house? So far I figure I should change all the locks on the doors, and give the entire house a thorough clean, and the carpet a steam clean. Cheers, any advice would be great.. My main concern is the Electricity..
