    I do wish you well in your new home and hope you can round up enough acquaintances to help you move.

    Tenancy Agreement signed, rent in advance paid (just), got the keys about 4 o'clock.

    Now the fun starts with C of C for benefits, as well as the usual utilities and so on.
    Oh and physically moving furniture.

    I have to say the people at the housing association have been great and very helpful.
    Maybe a bit of crossed wires today with the "income officer" giving me benefit advice.
    (Sorry Dan if you have come here for a look like you said you would, I should probably have just let you get on with your job).

    Nukecad, so pleased for you. It will be brilliant to have your own 4 walls.
    Remember what I told you, just in case.

    There's nothing in this world like being given keys to your own space

    I decided not to switch to UC just yet, maybe a month or two after I move.

    I've just got a butgeting loan on ESA (well it should be in the bank Friday) so I'm not telling the DWP about the change of address until that's in the bank.

    Initially that was going to be to buy a new cooker, but after talking to the finances guy at the HA yesterday he's seeing if he can get me a voucher from the HA to get a cooker. I didn't know that they had a 'charity' fund for things like that.

    Oddly the finances guy at the HA said not to notify the council for HB & CTR until I'm actually moved in, I may give them a ring anyway.
    Edit - it's correct, they don't want to know until you have actually moved.

    Todays first plan is to get the utilities in my name and the gas re-connected.
    Change all the light bulbs from those horrible 'U' shaped flourescent jobs to my own 8 watt LED bulbs, and see if I feel like doing anything else.
    Oh and tell my current landlord that I'm off.

    Well I've found out who the previous tenant was.
    I got a letter addressed to her through the door at the new flat and talking to the ladies in the Heritage Centre next to my old place to tell them I'm moving they identified her.
    I do know her slightly, but not well.

    And I say know, present tense, because she is not deceased.
    Apparently she moved to a bungalow across town about six months ago to be nearer family.
