Change of home address
If you are moving, you must inform the municipality of your new address. You must also do this if you are staying in the same municipality.
Will you be living together with someone? If you move into someone else's home, you must have written consent. Take this consent with you when you inform the municipality that you are moving.
A move can be reported by:
- You, personally, if you are 16 years or older
- A parent or guardian for minors
- Cohabiting spouses/registered partners for each other (only if they are moving together to the new address)
- Cohabiting parents and children of full age for each other (only if they are moving together to the new address)
- The guardian for a person who has been placed under guardianship
- A person of full age who is authorised for this purpose in writing
What you need to do
You inform the municipality where you will be residing about your move. You can report a move four weeks beforehand at the earliest. Just make sure to do this no later than five days after your move. The municipality may fine you if you tell them later.
You can tell them about your move online (DigiD).
You need the following to inform the municipality about your move in person or in writing:
- A completed Move report form
- Your valid proof of identification
- A copy of your purchase or tenancy agreement
- Written consent with a signature of the current resident
There is no cost to inform the municipality about a move.
