Things To Remember If You're Moving House

Moving into a new home gives you lots of things to be getting on with, but with so much to do it’s easy for certain jobs to get forgotten about. If you want to avoid forgetting about essential jobs for your moving day then why not have a look and see if this helpful guide can stop you from making that very mistake? 1)    Changing your address.It’s very important that you take the time to change your address with businesses and places so that you can be contacted and so that you won’t miss out on any important post! The easiest way to do this is by going to your local post office, though this will incur a small fee. This will save you from having to contact your bank, place of work, utility bill providers and much more as it will all be done for you. Definitely make sure this is done in time for your move so that you won’t have to worry about your post. 2)    Ensuring the important places know you’ve moved.Your doctor’s surgery, place of work and children’s schools all need to be aware of your move. Although changing your address at the post office will take care of most of this, it’s up to you to ensure that anywhere else that might need to contact you is also aware of the change. If you need to change your billing address or if you need to contact your bill providers then make sure this is done in plenty of time before you move, so that you don’t end up paying bills for a home in which you no longer live! 3)    Your TV licence, internet connection and phone line.Make sure that your TV license, internet and phone line have all been transferred to your new address. Lots of places will offer a “start date” so that you can get all of these things transferred over on the day that you move into your new home. You don’t want to be without internet or without a phone, so don’t forget about this very important step! 4)    Your end of tenancy clean.Lots of people neglect to remember their end of tenancy cleaning needs, and if you’re required to clean your property before you leave then make sure that you know what you’re doing! If you’re leaving a rented property then speak to your landlord, as you might need to complete certain tasks that you might otherwise have not realised you were responsible for. It’s also worth checking to see if any rooms in your home will be renovated after you’ve left – you don’t want to waste hours of your time cleaning carpets that are going to be ripped up, or scrubbing an oven that’s going to be replaced! 5)    Places you might need to register with.If you’re moving into a new home in a new area then you might need to register for certain things. Check with your doctor’s surgery to find out if you’re still in the same catchment area, and if not start looking for a new and reliable local doctor. You might also want to consider joining your local library or gym, so look into these as well. If you have children or teenagers that need a new school then this needs to be done as soon as possible to ensure that your children won’t be without education!
