A NEW website can help relieve the stress of moving house by notifying a variety of companies of a new address all at once.

A NEW website can help relieve the stress of moving house by notifying a variety of companies of a new address all at once.

Iammoving.com is the UK's only online change of address service and is run in association with the Royal Mail.

It is free to use and means users provide their details on just the one website. Notifications are generated and sent by the site securely to everyone from banks and building societies to BT. Bromley council has joined more than 1,500 other organisations including banks, utility companies and loyalty cards that are part of the service.

Sheila Bennett, Head of Customer Service at Bromley council said: "We recognised it was easier both for those moving in and out of the area and the council itself to be part of iammoving.com.

"It means that people in Bromley have fewer letters or phone calls to make when they move."

Letters going to old addresses can be used by identity fraudsters and the DVLA can fine you up to £1000 if you don't change your car's paperwork. More than £500 million of Premium Bond prizes remain unclaimed because they have lost touch with winners.
