(PRWEB UK) 15 October 2013
It has been reported in Expat Forum that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has warned those considering leaving Britain for warmer climes to plan for the unexpected, publishing a top 10 tips guide. It comes following an announcement that FCO staff last year helped a number of UK expats who had come into difficulties in areas such as property disputes, bankruptcy, pension complications and unexpected health issues. FCO minister Mark Simmonds explains, “It’s important to do your homework so that you are well informed about your new environment before you travel.” It is estimated that approximately 6 million British nationals are currently living abroad.

“It’s good to see that the government are taking steps to help former UK residents avoid facing financial difficulty or problems with the law whilst living abroad. It is essential for anyone thinking of relocating to research their new local laws and regulations before they go, making use of expat community resources and forums. Here at Interdean we offer our own expat checklist, which runs through important tasks such as changing address, confirming travel arrangements to small things like defrosting the fridge-freezer.”
