If you have an attorney, you should consult with him or her about this question, as local rules may require a specific type of notice.  However, you can certainly move from your home.  With that said, you may need to amend your schedules based upon any prepetition debt owed to your landlord.  Additionally, your security deposit may be held up depending if it was properly listed and exempted and whether the Trustee has had enough time to review your Schedule C.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
