One aspect of moving is often underestimated is the need to be vigilant over security. Competent estate agents are trained to qualify and vet prospective purchasers, avoid unsuitable unaccompanied viewings, and ensure that transactions do not fall foul of the anti-money-laundering regulations.
However there are other, less-obvious, aspects of the moving process that require attention as well. For example, recent research has shown that around 24% of homeowners leave themselves open to some form of identity theft when they move, simply by failing to redirect their post promptly.
