Apartment is different from an individual house and it provides more protection and security facilities. Moving in to an apartment requires a lot of preparations. Lease agreement has to be signed in the presence of witnesses.Later, many of the house hold items have to be packed and unpacked. Most of the apartments will be furnished. It is the duty of the new occupant of the apartment to take a look at the new house to see whether everything is in order and working properly. Smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers should be checked to ensure that safety is not compromised. Decorating the rooms and arrangement of pieces of furniture and house hold utensils may require the help from an agency.
