Adding or changing the name of an existing house or property
If a property has a number, you can add a name to it without applying to us. This means:
- the name is not part of the official address
- you must still display the number and always use it in the address
- you need to be careful that there is not a property with a similar name nearby
If you wish the name to form part of the official address, or the property doesn't have a number, you will need to apply to us. This means:
If you don't know the postcode, use this form
If you need a paper copy, contact us.
