Moving overseas in 3-6 months
Letting out or selling your home should be well underway. If letting out your house then a managing agent might be a wise investment – there’s not much you can do to help tenants with a broken boiler when you’re 10,000 miles away. Our property management service can help with this.
Now is also the time to arrange for an in-home survey and consultation from Crown. We’ll come out to your home to give you a quote on how much it will cost to relocate your possessions. Doing this in plenty of time will give you the opportunity to offload anything you don’t want to move or take advantage of our dedicated storage services.
Decide what to do with any vehicles you own. Your options may be selling, taking them with you or storing them for your return. With treasured pets, you will need to make decisions about either taking them with you or leaving them with a new owner.
Ensure any school applications are well underway. Passport and visa checks are critical at this point – don’t forget children’s passports only last five years. If you need any vaccinations now’s the time to get the whole family done.
You should explore overseas bank accounts and decide how you’ll manage your money when abroad – will you close down UK savings and investment accounts or keep them running? Also look into health insurance for your destination and check the impact of moving overseas on any life insurance policies, your wills and tax status. If you want to keep your UK vote you can arrange this online.
