Moving house checklist

Do I have to get a new TV Licence when moving home?

If you’re moving house, you will need to let us know your new address so we can ensure you’re still licensed.

At a time when you’re most likely to have a lot on your mind, TV Licensing brings home movers a practical short home movers' checklist:

  • Contact utility providers – ensuring you take meter readings before you move.
  • Update your TV Licensing details online
  • Inform your insurance provider (car, home), Inland Revenue, gas and electricity supplier, bank, employer and GP that you are moving
  • Set up a redirect mail service with the Post Office
  • Contact your broadband and telephone provider
  • Organise transportation for move day
  • Order cardboard boxes
  • Update your details on the Electoral Register.
  • Advise the DVLA – changing the details on your driving licence and any vehicle documents.
