Moving within France and the challenges it brings
We have recently relocated within france, from the Dordogne to the Charente. We've lived here for 4 years, owned our first house for 6 years... but the French legislation and the amount of stuff that needs to be completed never fails to baffle me.... In the UK we obviously cancel and change names on our services providers ie gas, phone, electric etc. etc... but here if you move from one department to another you seem to have to do a LOT more... you even have to notify the equivalent of the DVLA that your car is now in a different region... re register your AE to a new address, even getting the forms from your new doctor to the right place has been a bit of a nightmare if I'm honest.... I love living in France, I do not love the red tape that comes with it.
