Very basic - what does this mean! You might have signed for a contents itinerary as prt of the paperwork? No point spending money where it could be easily provided - or losing a deposit because nobody took stock of what was in!
Have you a contents list?
It will be very cold or your bills will mount up quickly if it dosn’t have lined curtains? I’d consider this a basic?
Sharp knife for chopping?
Breadboard to protect surfaces (& get deposit back!)
If the hrdware is already there for wifi and is over a year old then of something goes wrong with it you will be liable for it to be repaired. well - with Virgin at least this used be the case. Is there any wifi box there?
Is there a tv?
A toilet seat!?!!! I found out they are all different sizes and expensive to buy!!!
Green and Black bin at minimum - if there is no service contract in place the supplier ( eg Panda/City Bins) may have taken them away! But if they are full you from the previous occupant you will have to pay for them to be emptied! usually a tenner aprox each. If they owe money on past lifts you will have to pay this or they won’t empty your current bin (typically) so worth finding out!
I’d go to Homestore or Dunnes and buy nice new towels and dishtowels, new sheets and duvet cover and a spare, nice smelly disinfectant spray ( not bleach), a scrub thing for pots and dishes, bleach but only for the toilet, marigold gloves for the big move in house clean so you can relax after that knowing its your own germs, a large bottle of wine/beer, a bowl for microwaving popcorn in, a new tin opener and beer opener, a spatula for lifting things from the frying pan, a decent tefal frying pan of there is only an old one or none (Woodies) and also a coffee plunger / teapot (Woodies!) so you can relax on your first day! I’d also check for an icecube tray (Woodies/Homestore!) what lightbulbs the house needs. As lightbulbs are annonyingly expensive I’d check the lamps and rooms to see what is needed before you move in and try and get the landlord to replace them. I’d also get at least two cable splitter / extension for multiple plugs - bedroom, living room and a spare minimum.
And a take away menu from your new nearest chippie to have handy !
Also condiments if presses and fridge is empty - oil, pepper and salt grinder (Lidl e0.99c!) ,sugar, butter, ketchup, eggs, honey/jam, decent coffee/tea and a few tins of soup, biscuits for new guests, cornflakes, and a few tins of whatever takes your fancy to have to graze on as you look around tour empty house and winder what next!!!
Nice furry blanket and scented candles will impress the girls! (Dunnes/Woodies/TKmax) Good to have handy for impromptu first visit over!!
Good luck & lots of happiness in your new home!!
