Moving into your first property can be a long, complex and emotional process. For some, it can take a while to finally settle into their new home.

First things first

When it comes to settling into their new homes, people divide their time between the practical and the fun.

However, it’s not all work and no play. One in five respondents (20%) skipped cooking and ordered takeaway on their first day and another one in four (25%) got intimate with their partners:
