In the process of moving house & compiling the check list of "must change address"

House Insurance
Phone/Electric/TV License/Internet
Car insurance/car finance/DVLA/Driving License

Am I missing anything glaringly obvious?

Doctor /dentist /school
If you're expecting appointments/follow up sort of things from hospital or doctor then I would personally notify them separately

Also depending on when you're moving, notify sky or tv quite early as they usually have a long wait for an appointment. We had 4 weeks with no TV!

Same with the electric company- ours couldn't move is the same day do we had to get a temporary account with the sellers supplier and then had a few months of hassle with meter readings that didn't tally up.

Post redirect - needs a few days notice.

Thanks all

Pet Microchip was no.1 on the list
GP- yes, thank you- had missed that

My bank & car finance were fine to ring & give a date of address change in advance LittleMissM92.

No fancy TV packages to swap.

Internet can take a while to switch as Openreach can be really slow to sort things out.

Here's my list:

Mail redirect
Phone / internet / mobile
Gas / electric / water
Council Tax (check to see if there are any rebates if property is empty for a few days between moving out / in)
Rental agreements
Doctor / dentist / optician
Vet / insurance / Petlog
Credit cards
Bank / building society / savings accounts
Child trust fund
Driving licence
Car insurance
Home insurance
TV licence
Magazine subscriptions
Child benefit
On line shopping (Amazon, eBay, PayPal etc)
Investments and pensions
Electoral register
