Things to do while moving to new home in zurich

Hi
I was living in an apartment from a nice owner who was easy going. So I did not care much about the swiss laws regarding living in an apartment. Now I moved to a new place near my office. We moved in last week.

I need to know the things we need to do while moving to new home before its too late.

1. I have changed address of main places like banks, post, insurance.
2. I checked if the floor, walls , appliances are in good condition and mailed the agency the issues which I noticed after moving in just so as to say it is not my responsibility if you find them like that when I move out. I read this from englishforum that you have to do it within 14 days of moving in.

However I do not know if I missed anything more, and the search functionality did not help me much where I read about point 2.

So my question is do I have to do anything more once I move in to a new place ?

Re: Things to do while moving to new home in zurich

Since I did not get reply and it has been 2 weeks I moved I add these information :

Change of address applies to:
1. Bank details
2. Employer details
3. Post ( All Packages from old address to new address for one year )
4. Internet/TV provider
5. Billag
6. Credit cards
7. House insurance
8. Krankenkasse insurance
9. Verkehrsamt ( Driving license, even if address is not mentioned )
10. Mobility or Car insurance
11. Migros / Coop if they send you many magazines/coupons
12. Deregister from old place and Register in new place.
13. SBB if you have halfban or annual pass or credit card from them.

Get one of those letter box name plates made with your name on it with the same type-face etc as the existing ones.
