Mistake 3 – You don’t tell the right people that you’re moving.

You probably told all your neighbors that you were moving, and you may be at the stage of acquiring I ‘m Moving cards for friends. But you still have a long way to go before you actually move. Have you taken care of changing your television licence address? How about your gas? Electrical-power? Your financial institution? What about the Inland Revenue?

You’ll need to notify a list of companies regarding yourhome move.

  • The Post Office, so as to schedule a letter-redirect service to your new home.
  • The utilities company, gas, electricity, water, telephone, and Internet.
  • Your bank, building society, pension provider, and any organizations with which you have a financial relationship.
  • Inland Revenue has a listing of offices at https://www.hmrc.gov.uk/.
  • Your local council in order to be discharged from the council tax payment at your old home and start paying at your new home.
  • Employers
  • Your children’s schools.
  • As a car driver, you need to tell DVLA about your move so that you can renew your driver’s license and vehicle registration documents.

Take a few minutes to take advantage of your list now. Set a reminder in your calendar or on your cell phone and device to inform each person whose contact number you have that you are going to relocate at least two weeks before your move.
