In some prophetic traditions it has been reported that the verse of ‘sura baqara’ is good for protection from Satan and evil spirits. Therefore, a person should recite these verses three times out loud three days in a row and hope that whatever evil spirits where there would be gone.

There is no prophetic instruction regarding entrance into a new house. But in order to seek blessings and to protect oneself from evil and vice, if someone plans to use it then it would be allowed.
