    The home tour is a one-hour meeting with your Customer Experience Manager where you can take any final measurements, get to grips with all of the appliances and the amenities, and ask any questions you may have. We'll also give you access to our online resident portal. This hosts everything from appliance tutorials to your Home User Guide.

    At completion you, or your representative, will attend a handover with your Customer Experience Manager where we’ll give you the fobs and keys to your new home. We’ll take final utility meter readings, and share these with you by email afterwards, and together we’ll walk through the property and check the finish of your home to make sure everything's perfect.
  • Completion
    For the next two years after completion you'll be covered by the Mount Anvil warranty and looked after by our Customer Care team - the experts on getting the best out of your home and making the most of what Three Waters has to offer.

A guide to furnishing your home

1. Set a budget…and stick to it

Try to set a budget for each room and spend relatively evenly to stay on top of your finances. For the items you use every day, look to buy a quality finish as they tend to be more durable.

2. Inviting guests?

Try to make your furniture as versatile as possible. Perhaps buy an extendable dining table that can be lengthened or shortened depending on who’s round for dinner.

3. Don’t buy too much

Try to resist buying more decorative pieces like console tables until your main pieces of furniture are installed in your home. You may find that you don't need as much as you think when you've moved in and living in the space.

4. Measure twice, buy once

Use your upcoming home tour to take measurements for you larger items of furniture such as sofas, beds and dining tables. It'll save you having to make any returns!

5. Think about tones and styles

Good quality furniture will often outlast the rest of the décor, so think twice before using upholstery as a bold accent colour. It’s far easier and cheaper to change a cushion or curtain colour further down the line, and so neutral tones and wood types is often a safe bet, especially if you’re looking to rent your home out.

6. Get professional interior design help

If your agents don’t already offer the service, then contact us. We can recommend several great furnishing companies. They’ll share concepts, at a price point that suits you – and they’ll even deliver and install it for you!
 

Our top tips

Looking to rent out your home?

Stage 1

Find an agent

Save yourself some time - appointing an agent will mean you can cut out a huge amount of legwork, as they will: Advertise your property for you - Show prospective tenants around - Draw up a tenancy agreement - Do credit checks and draw up the relevant contracts/paperwork - Deal with any maintenance issues

Stage 2

Do your research

Ask your lettings agent or look at property websites such as Rightmove or Zoopla for comparative rentals in your area that match your home.

Stage 3

Weigh up the costs

Any rental income you receive may be taxed (we suggest you speak with an accountant). Keep in mind that if your property is managed by them, your lettings agent will charge this as an additional cost.

Stage 4

Organise insurance

Speak to your letting agent about arranging a landlord insurance policy if necessary. Landlord insurance can protect your property, your tenants and your investment as a whole. You may also be able to claim if your tenants miss certain payments. Don’t forget that your home is covered by a two year Mount Anvil warranty and ten year building NHBC Warranty starting from completion.

Stage 5

Get your property ready

Before you make your property available for rent, you will need to decide whether to let your home furnished or unfurnished. By furnishing your apartment: You may let your property quicker, catering to those looking for a move-in ready home. - You may be able to set a higher rent. - Your tenants may feel less ‘invested’ in your property, having not bought furniture, meaning more tenant turnover. - You may find the added expense unnecessary. - You will be liable for wear and tear.

Stage 6

What else should you consider?

You’ll be responsible for all repairs, maintenance and refurbishments. You may need to register with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.
