Moving to a new home is very exciting, but it can also be stressful to keep track of everything you must update in the process. Below is a checklist you may find helpful if you’re currently moving or will be moving in the near future.
Change of Address
Below are a few key places to think about when updating your address:
Call all service providers to give them your new service address and the date you want the service to go into effect. This may include gas, electricity, water, sewer, internet, cable, and phone.
Prior to moving, it’s important to contact your home insurance provider to discuss coverage on your new house. Verify with your mortgage lender if specific coverage is required per your new mortgage loan.
If you are moving for your career, keep a detailed record of all moving expenses. You may deduct moving expenses if your company does not reimburse you for them and if you have moved a certain distance. Along with keeping track of expenses, you may also want to carry important financial documents with you so you have quick access to them if the need arises.
Although it may seem like just another item on the to-do list, going over a checklist before and after the move will help ensure you get essential items updated in the midst of the excitement and activity!
