Address Change Checklist

There is nothing like receiving a handwritten note from a loved one, delivered the old fashioned way directly to your mailbox. Sure, bills, letters, cards and more can easily and more efficiently be accessed online, but where is the fun in that?

You have nearly reached the end of your home buying journey, and although the road has been long and winding, you have reached the final stage! Your fingers are itching to dive into unpacking and settling into your new home, but first you need to let your family, friends, companies, and government agencies know where they can reach you.

For family and friends, you can easily send a change of address card via mail or email, but there are a few more steps when it comes to informing government agencies.
