Why do you need the help of a professional relocation consultant when leaving the UK?

Your assignment in the United Kingdom is over and you’re already thinking about settling into your new destination. But before you plan for your next move, you need to set your affairs in order here. And leaving Great Britain is never as easy as booking a flight and packing your bags.

You can only grasp the complexity of leaving your current home when faced with it. The numerous cancellations (all with their respective timelines), juggling multiple admin tasks on a tight deadline – leaving the UK is no easy task. These are just a few of the things you’ll have to deal with:

  • Giving timely notice to end your rental contract
  • Cancelling all your contracts: electricity, gas, internet, phone, TV, and more.
  • Handing over your rental property. When you leave your apartment, there are very strict rules about the pristine condition it has to be in. It’s useful to know about all of them or you may have to pay penalties from your security deposit.
  • Terminating or keeping (if you plan to come back) your medical insurance, your pension contributions, and other insurance policies: car liability, life insurance, and so on.

What happens when you are on a tight deadline and you have to start your new assignment in another country in a few weeks? Typically, you’d throw money at all these bureaucratic hurdles just to make sure you left everything in good legal standing. But there’s an easier, smarter way:
