Report a change of address
If you receive help with your rent through us (housing benefit) and/or help towards your council tax bill (local council tax support) you need to let us know if you move home within Lichfield District - this is so we can transfer your claim to your new address.
If you are moving out of the area, you will need to contact your new local council about the help you can apply for.
How to tell us you have moved
Your application will start from the day that you start living at your new property. To report a change of address you will need to provide the following information:
- Date of birth
- National insurance number
- Post code
- Claim reference
You will also need to provide:
- Details of any changes since your last application, including any changes in household members
- Evidence of rent, if you are liable to pay rent on your new home (such as your rent book or new tenancy agreement)
