Congratulations on buying or renting a new home! Apart from what to pack first when moving house, who to tell about your move will be one of the biggest questions.

When moving to your new home, you need to ensure all your important correspondence comes with you. Not only does this help protect your personal information from being seen by whoever now lives at your old home, but it ensures you receive your new credit/membership cards, insurance premium notices, final bills and so on. It’s not enough just to redirect your mail, you need to change your address with all of your service providers and organisations you have dealings with.

Download our change of address checklist to help you update your address with everyone who needs to know.
