South East sellers likely to strip house
PEOPLE in the South East are most likely to strip their homes of all the bare essentials before moving, according to a new survey.
The research, commissioned by removals specialist, Robinsons, also found that 14 per cent of movers arrived at their new home only to discover the previous owners had taken curtains and blinds, 10 per cent took the garden plants, 8% took all carpets, 7% light bulbs and removed 5% light fittings.
The study also supports previous findings that moving house is the most stressful life event.
Anthony Robinson, managing director at Robinsons, says: “The research results highlight that people can get extremely worked up about moving house. It doesn’t have to be a stressful experience.”
