Moving Home Tips


Moving home can be stressful.  Our conveyancing service  (www. mjpconveyancing.co.uk ) is designed to make moving home a more relaxing experience and our home moving consultants are always on hand to help you with any queries.  

For starters here are some tips to help:

Redirect your mail

Don’t forget to have your mail redirected to your new home. Just take two forms of ID to the Post Office and ask for a mail redirection form. Find out more at http://www.royalmail.com/ . Don’t forget to forward mail to previous residents costs nothing, write ‘Not known at this address’ and their new details on the envelope or package then repost it.

Tell your doctor, dentists and health providers that you’ve moved

Make sure you tell your doctor and dentist your new address and contact details. Do the same for any other health clinic or hospital you attend regularly. Don’t be surprised if you have to register with a new GP.

Inform your insurance policies and pension providers

Take time to make sure your bank, building society, insurance and pension providers know your new address and contact details – remember to update any online registration details too.

Notify TV Licensing of your new address.

Your TV licence doesn't automatically move with you when you move house. If you don't notify TV Licensing of you new address, you could end up being unlicensed in your new home, even if you paid for a licence at your old address. Anyone who watches TV without a licence risks prosecution and a fine of up to £1000, so make sure you're covered: http://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/


Update your driving licence and vehicle registration documents

It’s an offence to hold a driving licence or vehicle registration that does not carry your current address – ask you post office for the appropriate form and let the DVLA know you’re moving as soon as possible: http://www.taxdisc.direct.gov.uk

Cancel the milkman and other home services

Let the milkman know you're moving – and the window cleaner too. Cancel or update any magazine subscriptions too.

Get to know your new neighborhood.
