I moved without it last time, and nearly lost my stuff. The fact that my partner's sister worked for the Municipality and the cops new here was the only thing that saved us (that plus 20 soles for ...)
However, after I moved, someone in my new neighborhood was mooving out and the police checked if they had their permit, they did not..it ended up that they were steaking from a family on vacation and if the police had not checked, everything the family owned would have been gone when they returned.
I support the mudanza permit.
I remember incidents many years ago when people did not want to announce funeral details (time, etc) on the newspaper, as they ran the risk of returning to an empty house after the funeral.
Many years ago in Lima, we saw new neighbors moving into a house down the block. A couple of weeks later they moved out. They were newlyweds who after moving in left for their honeymoon. In the meantime somebody knew they were away and stole all their belongings.
Americorps? If those 'thieves' that were stealing have given also 20 soles to the police, would they have also got away?
