Moving home checklist

Moving house can be a stressful time with so many people to notify about your move. We've put together a helpful moving home checklist of who to tell and when, designed to be used as a guide when changing address.

Landlords and letting agents

Tenant moving out or moving in

If you’re a landlord or letting agent and there’s a change in occupier for the property you’re managing, you can let us know about it online. You can give us the details of a tenant or organisation moving in to or out of your property, and we’ll sort out the rest.

Moving a tenant to a vacant property

If you have a property that’s been vacant and now has a tenant or organisation moving in, there’s a way to give us these details without providing information about who’s moved out. Once we have the incoming occupant’s details, we’ll complete the moving process.
