7 ESSENTIAL checks after getting your KEYS

Hooray to collecting of your keys to your new home!

Below are the essential pointers that you need to know after collecting your keys!

1. KEYS
Do try all the keys that you have collected and make sure that all of them are working. There might be chances that one of the many keys is faulty! 
This include the MAILBOX key too which many of us might have forgotten due to the excitement of "rolling pineapple"!
There are surprises in the mailbox too, I'm not talking about the piles of renovation advertisement. You should be able to find TV wires and water pipe winder (this is essential for turning on the water supply in the house) in the mailbox.




2. WINDOWS
Open up all the windows and check that the catch is not loose and in working condition. 



3. TURN ON WATER SUPPLY
On all the taps to ensure that the water are flowing and flush the toilet bowl. If possible, pour the water on the kitchen and toilet floor to ensure that the water are flowing into the drainage.




4. ELECTRICAL POINTS
Bring along a testpen or a charger, plug into all the available power points and check that all the points are good. 




5. SWITCHES
Play with the switches to make sure that all of them are in working condition, as there are chances that the switches are stucked due to the construction.


6. INDOOR LAUNDRY PULLEY SYSTEM
Make sure that you are able to pull and retract the lines.

7. DOORS
Ensure that all the doors are in working condition, including the knobs/handles.


Hope the above will help you in checking your house after key collection!
Have lots of fun designing your flat :)
