Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.”
