Before You Begin... if you are selling a property as well as buying one, and the purchase of your next home is dependent on selling, it is strongly advisable to sell your home before you get down to serious house-hunting. If not, you could end up frustrated and disappointed, as well as having noticeably less money in your bank account. If you are moving home, possibly the last thing you think of is to arrange to have your mail re-directed. However, with the increases in identity fraud, it is certainly something that should be high on the list of things to do. Even if you have a good relationship with the people buying your home who may forward post to you for a while, any mail going to your old address can put you at risk of identity fraud. Action Fraud recommends redirecting your mail for at least a year, to significantly reduce the risk. Redirection forwards all the mail sent to your old address to your new one and you can redirect your mail for 3, 6 or 12 months. Re- direction of mail can be arranged even after you’ve moved. It can be done online, by post or at your local Post Office ® branch. For more details visit www.royalmail.com Mail Matters
