You should make arrangements for your post to be redirected at least two weeks prior to vacating the property, as it is not the landlord or future tenant’s responsibility to forward this on.

Make sure you cancel any standing orders to your landlord or letting agency once the tenancy has come to an end, and don’t forget to notify any utility companies and service providers of your move - remembering to provide a final meter reading on moving out day too.

Here is a list of all the companies you should notify when changing address – print it out, pin it up and tick them off.
