Who to inform

This handy check list reminds you all fo the people who might need to know you are moving and lets you track your progress for informing them, especially if you need to close accounts and take reference numbers.

When should I do this? Most organisations this can be done within 2 weeks of moving, however its worth checking with individual service providers as some (e.g. Digital TV) may require a months cancellation notice).
