Condominium moving checklist – Part 3 – Importance of handover list

What needs to be checked when moving to a condominium? Treasure at Tampines share with you the checklist in this series of articles.

Importance of handover list

The problem is, if you don’t put in the time to go through the handover list, you’re binding yourself legally to that list. Basically, you’re making a guarantee that says, β€œYes, this is what is in the property.” If you have signed on the legal documents and thereby claimed that you’ve checked the property and accepted it as is, should there be any problems, it’s going to be on you.

You probably don’t need me to remind you of how much of a headache this could be. Not only are you going to have to take time out of your busy schedule, but you’re probably going to be making out of pocket expenses yourself.

Little repairs here and there can add up quite a bit. You may be thinking that a few chipped paint spots here or wall scratches there and stains on the floor here are probably not going to add up to much. Think again. Not only do those issues cost you money per issue, but they also cost you time.

Also, little expenses, as innocuous as they may be on an individual basis, can add up to a hefty bill. Do yourself a big favor and skip this unnecessary drama. Take that handover list very seriously. Go over the items line by line when you go to the property before you move in.

Please understand that regardless of whether you are moving from Europe, USA, Australia, or anywhere else, that doesn’t give you an excuse to blow off the handover checklist. It is a very important document. You don’t want to find out the hard way that there are certain things that you have to pay for after you have already moved in and your interior space is just filled with your stuff.

Hope this article shared by Treasure at Tampines, will get you prepared when moving to a condominium.
