Buying a New Apartment in Vaud

I am in the latter stages of buying a new apartment in Vaud. I have arranged a date to take possession, but am not sure what the process looks like.

Grateful for any advice. Some questions include:
  • How do I go about finalising payment (I have a promise of a mortgage from UBS and have paid the deposit)?
  • When do you think I can start getting mail delivered - from the date I take occupation?
  • Is there the equivalent of snagging, i.e inspecting the quality of work and getting things fixed? And is it likely a lot will need sorting out?
  • What arrangements need to be made with other residents and how does that work (e.g. washing machine rota, charges etc)?
  • Is there any reason I can't move in on the day I take possession?

There's probably tons of other things I need to know. I am currently registered in BL, as is my car.

Should I have somebody with good French to accompany me? My French is not brilliant, although it has got me this far with the purchase.
