Of course, with a new house comes a new address, and the list of people who have to be informed where you will be in future is long. Apart from family and friends, it is also essential to inform:
- the registration office
- the TV license administration service
- the bank
- insurance companies
- your mobile telephone provider
- your newspaper and magazine delivery service.
The same applies to club memberships, fitness studios and video hire shops whose contracts must be either updated or canceled. Sometimes it can take quite a while before everybody who needs to know is actually informed about the change, so to avoid the situation that your post does not reach you, you can apply at the Post Office for it to be forwarded to your new address.
