Whether you're thinking of selling your home this year, or you plan to leave it to your children in your will, every home requires maintenance.

And by massive, we mean expensive.
We've put together this handy printable checklist to guide you through the small tasks around your home that will keep it functioning properly throughout the year. With the boring stuff done, you can turn your attention to adding some wallpaper or redoing a bathroom this year, confident that the whole project will not go up in flames because all of your smoke detectors work.
