Moving Tips: Determine local rules and regulations before buying a home

Checking for recycling times is necessary when moving to the new home.

Checking for recycling times is necessary when moving to the new home.

There are many things to consider before you start packing or even purchase your next home. If you have an idea of the neighborhood you will be living in, it is important to check with local authorities about all rules and regulations you will need to abide by. This will make sure you are prepared once your moving company delivers your items to the new home.

While learning all of the rules is a good idea, looking over every single bylaw in an area could be tedious. Instead, you may want to focus on the ones that you know will affect you the most. If you plan to have parties on your street, not only would you benefit informing your neighbors of the noise, but you may also want to see if there is a set time for quiet hours. By not doing this, you can set yourself up for noise complaints, tickets or breach of peace charges.

If you are interested in installing a pool, it is important to know if regulations in your city or town will allow this. Sometimes, regulations may limit how closely these can be constructed to property lines, while other areas may not allow such construction. This could also affect any type of digging on a property, as municipalities typically require citizens to inform them of plans to do this. The reason behind it could be because there are power lines or pipes that cannot be excavated.

Finally, you will want to look up regulations on trash and recyclable pickups. This can make your life much easier, as you won't have to guess when your items will be taken away or know you need to visit the dump. This will also make getting rid of trash after the move-in much less stressful, as you will know exactly when you can dispose of all of it.
