Moving home is one of the most stressful things anyone has to do. It is always an exciting time especially if you have found the home of your dreams. However, packing everything you own up ready for the move is something that most people dread doing. You have to be very organised when you move home and this includes making yourself a checklist of things you need to do as well as people you need to inform about the fact you are moving.
You have to inform your power supplier that you are moving home and make sure all meters are read so that final bills can be sent out to you at your new address. You also have to inform the DVLA you are moving, so any cars you own are registered at your new address. If you have always had newspapers or magazines posted to you at your old address, you have to make sure you have changed your subscription address to your new one. You also have to inform the tax office you will be living at a new address and make sure you inform your local tax office you will no longer be responsible for any council tax on your old property from the day you move out of it.
You also have to inform the new local tax office you are moving into the area, if you are moving to a new part of the country. With so many things to remember to do, it can seem a little daunting at times and this is when your checklist really helps you out. You can tick off the things you’ve done so it’s just a question of working down through your list to make sure you don’t forget anything.
