Pre move check list

Pre-move check list

Before you get moving into your lovely new Llanmoor Home, make sure you have covered the list of items off below. A lot of the time people forget those little things that can cause a lot of hassle later. Try your best to be prepared!

p

Inform people of your move

Let companies, family and friends know of your new change of address.

As you are moving into a brand new housing development you may find that some companies delivery address information does not currently list your full postal address and post code when you move in, especially if you are one of the first to move in. Street naming, numbering and post coding is approved between the Local Authority and the Post Office. The Post office will often only register the actual address of a new home onto their database upon its being occupied. Llanmoor advise the Post Office of each property that is occupied as soon as possible after you legally complete your purchase. Some delivery Companies do not use the latest Post office gazetteer information and so then can sometimes be issues with deliveries. Regrettably these issues are out of our control.
