It is not compulsory for your completion date and therefore your removal date to be on a Friday. In fact there are many reasons why you should try to avoid moving on a Friday:-
- Its popularity can be its downfall, the conveyancing process is still carried out by people not computers.
- A good removal company can be very difficult to find as Fridays get booked up quickly. Many even charge more for a Friday removal.
- If something goes wrong and completion does not happen you will have to wait until Monday before you can get hold of your solicitors or the bank to put it right.
- If, on moving into your new house, you experience problems with the heating or utilities getting an engineer out on a Friday night or at the weekend is going to be difficult if not costly.
If you organise your packing there will be no need to unpack everything upon arrival in your new home, with careful planning everything you need for the next day or two can be easily accessed and everything else can wait until the weekend.
