Who to notify about your new address

There are many people you need to tell when you move, but don’t let that worry you, our handy checklist below will help make sure you don’t miss anyone important out.

We’ve added a downloadable home-moving checklist which you can print and tick off as you go.

It’s also a great idea to sign up to the Post Office's mail-redirection service to make sure you don’t miss any post which may go to your old address from companies who you may have forgotten to inform.
