Who to notify when moving home

Congratulations, you're moving home! It's time to tell everyone about it! But who are the most important people to notify?

It's not just your friends and family who need to know when you move. There's a long list of organisations and companies that need to know your new address.

I recommend to use Royal Mail's Redirection Service when you move. You may forget somebody, or they may not receive your new address in time, so this service will help to avoid the ones who slip through the net.

Below is a list to help you keep track of everyone you need to notify. Feel print the list and cross them off as you go:
