Moving from our current offices

Dear Sheila,

Our business has grown and we are moving from our current offices in one of our care homes to a purpose built office suite. What do we have to do to comply with legal requirements?


Dear Sandra,

Luckily CQC has a form for notifying them of any changes to your registration details. New forms were introduced from 1 April 2015. You find CQC’s guidance at

You should try to inform CQC before the move takes place but otherwise as quickly as possible afterwards.

I cannot stress to you enough that you should take a copy of all information that you send to CQC.

With best wishes.
