Who should you notify when moving house?
When moving house, you’ll need to tie up some loose-ends before you settle into your new home. This includes informing people of your new address. While letting your family and friends know of your new address is an obvious task, we will take a look at some other contacts that should be informed.
Employers and Revenue:
First and foremost, make sure to let your employer know of your change of address. This will allow them to update your contact details and ensure that their payroll processes run smoothly. This brings us on to the next point of contact, Revenue. For taxation purposes, it’s important to inform Revenue of your change of address through their website.

To make sure you are not billed for utilities at your old house, let your electricity, gas and water providers know that you are no longer at that address. The same should be done with your local waste collection service. If you are leaving rented accommodation, you may need to transfer these utilities to the landlord’s name.
You should also update the address linked to your TV licence. This can be done here. (Link: https://www.tvlicence.ie/ChangeAddressLogOn.aspx)
If your children are staying in the same school after the move, the school will need to be aware of your new address. This will allow the school to ensure that they have the most up-to-date contact details for you.
Home, Health and Life Insurance:
Your insurance policies should be updated with your new address. To do this, contact your insurers directly with your new details.
Banks and Financial Institutions:
To make sure you are receiving any postal correspondence from your bank to the correct address, let them know that you have moved house. The same should be done with your credit union, building society, credit card company, pension provider and any other financial institutions where you have accounts.
Your GP, dentist, optician and any other healthcare providers that you use should be informed of your change of address, so that their records can be updated. This is also important if you need to transfer medical records to healthcare providers in your new locality.
The Road Safety Authority (RSA) should be informed of your change of address. This can be done through their website. (Link: https://www.rsa.ie/en) Your vehicle insurance company should also receive an update of your address, so that policy can be updated.
