When you are filling out the condition report, make sure that you include absolutely everything that has a tiny bit of damage— chips in the kitchen bench, every broken tile, stains in the carpet, and even the state of the garden. Remember that when you move out of the place your landlord will assess its condition, and if there has been any damage at all the landlord will not refund your bond, but use the money to make repairs.
If for some Reason they haven’t been connected, get onto the service provider ASAP. It doesn’t matter whether you are using removalists or your friends are helping you—you need to be around for the whole time they are unloading your furniture. It can save a whole lot of hassle if you have worked out where you want everything to go before you move in.
That way your stuff can be placed in the exact position you want, without your going ‘just leave it there for now and I’ll move it around later’—that is such a waste of time and energy. Even if you only work out where you want the big, heavy items—like your fridge, wardrobe, chest of drawers, dining table, TV, washing machine—I’m sure you get the picture.
