Change of Address Checklist

Here's a helpful reminder of all the things you need to do when you change to a new address!

Who to tell when you move home

Congratulations, you're moving house and it's time to spread the word! But who exactly do you need to tell about a change of address?

It's not just your friends and family who need to know when you move. There's a long list of other organisations and companies that need to know your new address. That's why we created this checklist - so you can keep track of who you have and haven't told about your new address.

Get your own copy of the checklist by downloading it or you can have it sent directly to your email by using the boxes below.
