You’ll have lots of paperwork to sort through when moving house, so it’s important to prioritise to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Certain documents, such as your house buyer’s contract, are absolutely crucial to the big move. Other paperwork, like updating your address details for your home and contents insurance and utilities, are worth doing a few days or weeks in advance.
Once you’ve moved you should change the address on your driving license and with your bank. If you are moving to a new area completely, you should move doctor’s surgery, because, if you need a call out and haven’t registered with a new surgery, it won’t be as easy to be seen quickly by the medical services.
