How to change your house name
Did you know that if you name your home you could boost your property’s value? This is a simple step, yet the most overlooked way to add value to your home.
Some estate agents estimate that an attractive name can boost a property’s value by thousands of pounds, so it is worth considering even though there is typically some red tape and a small fee involved. You will have to check your choice with your local council and consult with Royal Mail to ensure your choice of name isn’t already taken.
But be careful about the name you choose as it may put potential buyers off and also bear in mind that if your home currently has a number, you cannot just swap it for a name – but you can have a name and a number.
Another top tip is to change the name of your home as soon as you move in. It’s definitely one of those jobs that never gets done unless you do it immediately, and it becomes more difficult the longer you leave it.
