To make your life easier, we have compiled a handy A to Z guide of who you need to notify.
A is for Animal Care (and includes your pet’s usual vet, groomer and if you use one, dog walker).
B is for Banks, Building Societies, and Broadband.
C is for Council, Clubs, and Cable/Satellite.
D is for Doctor, Dentist, DVLA, and DWP (if you receive money from the government).
E is for your Electricity Supplier (do not forget to read the meter!) and the Electoral Roll.
F is for your Friends and Family.
G is for your Gas Supplier and Gym membership (or cancel your membership if you are moving out of the area).
H is for HMRC. (We wish they did not know where we lived, either.)
I is for Insurance – House, Car, Business, Life, Pet, Travel, and Health. (You need to insure your new property from the completion date.)
J is for Job.
K is for the Kids' School(s).
L is for Loyalty Cards and Loan Companies.
M is for your friendly Milkman and the Microchip Database for your pet(s).
N is for Newsagent for your paper deliveries.
O is for Optician and Online Shopping. (Where would we be without internet shopping?!)
P is for Premium Bonds and your Pension Investment Company.
Q is for Quick Food2Go. Imagine when you realise your takeaway’s been delivered to your old address?
R is for Royal Mail Redirect service. You can opt for your mail to be redirected for 3, 6, or 12 months.
S is for Subscriptions, Share Registrars and Services (if you have an accountant, solicitor, gardener, window cleaner or house cleaner).
T is for your Telephone Provider (mobile and landline) and TV Licence.
U is for Utilities and University.
V is for Vehicle Breakdown Cover and Vehicle Logbook.
W is for Water Supplier.
X is for X Marks the Spot. Update your address for ‘Home’ on your car’s sat nav.
Y is for Your Buyer. It is sensible to leave a forwarding address at your old property in case you’ve missed something.
Z is for the Zoo (or anywhere else where you might have an annual membership).
