    since I have moved/since I moved

    Which sentence is correct?

    1) I haven't been in London since I have moved to Bristol.
    2) I haven't been in London since I moved to Bristol.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Can we say "I haven't been in London since I have been living in Bristol"?

    Yes, but better, I think, would be "I haven't been to London since...."

    Since I moved sounds more natural to me.
