This makes sure that after the purchase of the property, the home buyer can seamlessly have a comfortable stay in their property. However, most of them are not aware of what are the most crucial steps that they need to take care of after purchasing the property.

RealtyNXT lists the most important things that every homebuyer needs to do after buying their dream house.

1. Deep Cleaning

It is important that the house is cleaned thoroughly so that any toxic materials or smell does not cause any harm to the residents of the house. Especially families with kids and the elderly must make sure that they take professional help to deep clean the house to make sure no tools or construction materials are left in the house.

In the case of homebuyers who have bought an old property, deep cleaning is important to keep away pests or dirt that may create problems after moving into the property.

2. Digitise Property Documents

In an age where maintaining digital records are possible in the ease of a few steps, it is important that homebuyers make sure that they digitise all hard copies of their property documents. This is because, in case of loss of any important hard copy of such documents, one can make use of these digital copies in case of an emergency. One of the easiest ways to digitise the documents is by scanning all these papers and keeping it safely on one’s laptop or external hard disk.

3. Security

In cases when one has purchased an individual house, home buyers must make sure that the locks on the door are of good quality and for further strengthening the security of their house, they may also install CCTV cameras to be on the safer side and avoid any unfortunate instances.

In the case of apartments, it is important that new homeowners know the security guards of their apartments well and also ensure that the locks on their front door are of good quality. Other security measures like keeping a check on the balcony or windows are important so that they can be careful about the safety of their kids or the elderly.

4. Property Tax

In case one has bought a resale property, it is important that the name of the property owner is updated so that the rights of the property rests with the current owner. Once the name of the previous owner is changed and the name of the current owner is updated, the new homeowner will receive a Mutation Certificate. 

5. Know The Neighbours

After moving into a new house, it is important to know the neighbours and establish a good rapport with them. This ensures that in case of any emergency or in the absence of the homeowner, their neighbours can keep a check of their house on their behalf or pass on important information whenever necessary. Maintaining a healthy relationship with neighbours is one of the most important tasks for every new homeowner.
