Waalykum Salam

Congratulation with your moving.
May Allah bring a lot of blessing and joy upon you in your new place and that you’re able to be a shelter servant to the Amighty.
It is highly recommended to give a ‘Walimah’ upon buying a new house and moving into it.
If there are worries that are bothering you then you may give good charity and feed the poor.
Apart from the above, nothing that I came across with the things you mentioned. You can certainly do everything.
InshaAllah all goes well.
Kind regards
