What happens next

All forms should be sent to the address or email address on the form.

After consulting with Royal Mail, we will email the applicant confirming the new postal address.

We will inform various agencies of the new address, this includes the emergency services, Ordnance Survey, utility companies and Scottish Assessors.

It may take several months for the address to show on all third-party databases. This is because companies download Royal Mail data at different intervals throughout the year.
