We are regularly asked if it is ok for a move to be booked on settlement day. Whilst there is a benefit in the moving day being the day after settlement, it is not always the best option. If for example you are in the all too common situation of a double settlement day, then shifting the day after may not be the best option at all. A double settlement day is one in which the settlement on the house you are selling and the settlement on the house that you are buying is all happening on the same day. In this situation you can’t put off getting your possessions out of the first house, but you may have to wait before you can unload it all into the next house! Now moving day is always going to be a unique experience for each person moving house, and settlement move days are in their own special category of moving days. Previously i discussed a moving day involving two lovers moving in together, this can sometimes be a triple settlement day… but lets not go into elaborate details!
