Fisrt thing to check would be that if you decided on something like"Hill View", ask the local postman if there's a similar address nearby so your post won't go astray. Then find out exactly which postal area the house is in.
We've recently been told by the local post office that our house isn't where we thought it was
When we bought it, the title deeds, estate agent and previous owners all listed it as being in Prosperous Co. Kildare. Now two years later, the local post office in Prosperous has only recently started re-directing our post to Sallins post office for onward and thus delayed delivery to us. When I queried this, the rather abrupt post mistress informed me that my house was 200 metres outside the Prosperous boundary and I was therefore in the Sallins district. Now Prosperous is 1 mile from my house, Sallins is 4 1/2 miles away. I also told her that the title deeds stated the house is in Prosperous and that we had been getting our post delivered using the Prosperous address for the past two years. She said that we shouldn't have and then hung up. Now I'm caught between putting up with a delayed postal service or changing all my bills, car tax, insurance, etc to a new address.
