Abstract

Moving house is recognized as one of the most stressful events in people’s lives. In the main, the assumption is that the stress is due to the factors related to relocation: deciding what to take to the new house; arranging removals; having to end and start services, and tell people about change of address; sorting out the new house, including building works; getting used to living in a new area, getting to know people and to sort out daily living arrangements. All of this can be, and frequently is, highly stressful.
