Redirecting your post
When you move home, make sure your post moves with you. Think about all of the important documents you could receive in the post: medical information, mortgage statements, council tax bills, payslips and much more. Missing any of these could create problems further down the line.
If your post isn’t redirected, there’s a risk that your post can fall into the wrong hands. It’s not just more convenient to redirect your post; it’s safer too.
You can redirect your post to any address in the UK or abroad.
Redirecting your post is simple. Choose how long you want your post redirected for: three months, six months or a year. The table below outlines the prices for the different periods and locations. After 12 months, it’s assumed that you would have taken the steps to have your mail posted to your new address by the sender, however you can continue to have your post redirected after this period to combat fraud.
You can apply online via the Royal Mail website (you will need to open an account if you don’t already have one). Or you can print and complete the form online and bring it into your local Post Office branch. We also have application forms in our branches, so all you need to do is pay us a visit.
What we’ll need:
- The names and dates of birth of all people living at your old address whose post you want to redirect
- A payment card that is registered to your old address (if it is registered to your new address, we may need to ask you a few extra questions to combat fraud)
- The addresses and postcodes of your old address and new address
