Here are a few things to think about, starting with ‘Are you really sure you want to live together’?
Are You Really Sure?
This is the first thing you need to think about and discuss, even before you start looking for places to rent and home removalists in Perth to help you move. When couples move in together, they should do so for the right reasons, not just because it’s convenient or because the other has asked them to do so.
Give some thought to why you’re moving in together and don’t be afraid to bring up any reservations you have with your significant other, after all, if you can’t discuss something as serious as moving in together, what chance does your relationship have?
Leave – Your reservations behind by having an honest discussion about your future together
Bring – Lots of love, optimism and the determination to make things work out for the best
Find a Great Place
Your first home together should always have a special place in your hearts. Whether you’re looking for something short or long-term, give your available options a good going through to make sure the home you choose, whether a studio, a house or something in between, perhaps a two-bedroom apartment, is a great place to live, somewhere you’ll really enjoy spending time in.
Leave – Things that you don’t have need of behind if it helps you rent a smaller, more affordable place
Bring – The things that are important to you, whether that’s a family photo or your Star Wars collection
Money – Who’s Paying for What?
Nothing comes between couples like money. Before you move in together, you need to not only make sure you can both afford to move out, but also that you’re clear on who’s paying for what. 50/50 is the way to go for most, but some people earn much more than their partner and may be happy to pay more than half.
Leave – The opinions of others out of it and work out an arrangement that suits you both
Bring – The desire to make your relationship work by avoiding money-related problems
