Moving home checklist

Change of address service

The website ’I am moving’ allows you to tell many organisations including gas and telephone companies of your new address - all for FREE. www.iammoving.com

Have you contacted your Council Tax Office?

Contact your local council’s council tax office to let them know the date you move out of your current property and when you move into your new one so they bill you correctly.

Have you redirected your post?

You can download the form from the Post Office website. It can take up to 10 days to set up and there is a charge. www.postoffice.co.uk/redirection

Have you informed your utility providers?

You need to tell them at least 48 hours in advance that you are moving. Pass on the details of your current supplier to the people moving in. On your moving day you will need to read the meters in both properties so the correct bills can be issued. When you move into your new home, contact who you want to supply your utilities and suppliers so they can register you as a new customer. Visit here to find out how to choose and change supplier.

Have you arranged for your final telephone bill?

If the answer is no, you will need to do this and arrange a new connection at your new home. You may be able to transfer your existing number.

Have you informed your bank or building society?

You will need to do this to ensure your statements are delivered to your new address. The same applies to your credit card company, and insurers. It is also important to alter or cancel direct debits you have for your old home.

Have you updated your driving licence?

Visit the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency to find out how at the DVLA website.

Have you updated your details on the Electoral Register?

The register is updated every month and you need to be included on it to vote. You can download the form from the Electoral Commission's website and then send it to your Electoral Registration Office, which is based at your local council.

Have you told the TV licensing?

Your TV licence will need to be transferred. You can do this online or by calling 0870 241 6468.

Have you decided what you do and don’t want to take?

There are lots of charities that will gladly have your unwanted items including charities that specialise in recycling furniture. You can search for a charity in your area on the Charity Commission’s website.

And finally...

After you’ve moved in you might want to look at the government section on home improvements to read about energy efficiency, fire protection and other measures for your new home.

A big thank you to the direct.gov.uk website for providing most of the above information.

Kelrick Properties have served us very well for the last eight years in renting out our property in Ince, Wigan. We live abroad and they have managed to achieve tenants for us, and sort out all our contracts and maintenance at our property efficiently and without hassle. We highly recommend them and use their complete service enabling us to be "worry free". We value their time and expertise as we value our tenants. Sandy and Shirley Montgomery (France).

Another year where Kelrick Properties have looked after the letting of our property and managed a difficult situation for us and our tenant with discretion and a good outcome for both parties.
Here's to another year of stress free letting, for us! (January 2020)
