Some of these address updates can be handled before you move or online. Your real-estate agent will let you know when it is time to transfer utilities and which ones are accept for the area. Moving with kids? Look for a new school district and let the previous one know to transfer the records.

  1. Change your address with the post office. You will have one month to get the rest of your mail going to the right address. It may be better to cancel subscriptions and start new.
  2. Stop by the DMV to update your registration and plates for your car. This has to be before 30 days.
