Before you begin your application, you should review our guidelines.
If you are not the owner of the property, you must provide the owner's written consent to requested address changes.
Your application must include a detailed site plan that shows where the entrance to the property is located. It must also include a copy of the land registry deeds.
Where relevant, you must provide a planning application reference. This must show that permission for any stated works to the property has been granted. Your application may not be considered without this.
If an application is approved we will then send instructions to Royal Mail who are responsible for assigning postcodes.
Applications can take up to six weeks to complete and larger ones may take longer.
