Moving Home? Print or Save This Change of Address Checklist

key in door of new home

Are you planning on moving home soon?

If so, you may use, save or print our change of address checklist below.

You should update your address details as soon as possible because:

  • Conflicting information held by credit reference agencies can affect your credit score and chances of getting finance.
  • You don’t want to be financially associated with anyone moving into your old address.
  • You don’t want to lose any important deliveries – don’t forget, Royal Mail redirection only affects mail sent through Royal Mail, not other delivery firms.
  • To avoid identity theft.

We suggest you also check your credit score and the information held by the credit reference agencies in the months after you move home.

Clearscore is currently free and uses data from Equifax, one of the leading credit reference agencies.
