When you are moving house there is so much to do and think about and one of those things is notifying everyone of your change of address. It’s so easy for someone to slip through the cracks (I know I still get post for a previous resident, despite having lived here for 4 years). It also puts you at risk of identity fraud and could hurt your credit history so it’s really important that you update everything.

To this end, we’ve put together a moving house checklist you can work through so that you don’t miss anyone out. It’s been organised by categories to make things easier.
