Your Complete Moving Guide Settling Into Your New Home Get To Know The Neighbourhood As you’re probably new to the neighbourhood, take the opportunity to get to know others in the area. Introduce yourself to your next door neighbours and any other residents you encounter on the street. These can prove to be valuable relationships, as people in your neighbourhood can help you settle into your new life. They can offer you recommendations for local schools, doctors and other amenities in the area - helpful information if you’re in a completely new city!
