Change of address (banks, uni, doctors, council tax exemption, electoral register)
The most irritating part of moving is forgetting who you’ve told about your new address. I’m sure the people who live in my old flat have thoroughly enjoyed receiving unsolicited pay slips, letters, takeaway curries and saucy negligee due to by forgetfulness. Except the negligee – I made that up. Honestly. Anyway, to avoid similar embarrassment, make sure you notify everyone you can about your new address. The key ones to remember are: your bank/building society, the university, your employers, the doctors, the dentist, and any sites you shop with online. You may also want to make sure you’re on the electoral register if you plan on voting this summer. You’ll also need to obtain a council tax exemption certificate from your university and provide it to the council. This is all desperately boring, but desperately essential unfortunately, so don’t forget!
