Multiple Residence address data from Royal Mail

Additional addresses

The Multiple Residence database from Royal Mail lists the addresses of households and businesses that lie behind a single delivery point, such as university halls of residence or nurses' accomodation. Multiple Residence contains an additional 800,000 address records that aren't listed on the Postcode Address File (PAF). For example, a townhouse converted into three self-contained apartments which all have their mail delivered to the single front door of the property.

Add detail to PAF

Multiple Residence adds an extra layer of detail to Royal Mail PAF data that allows companies to know exactly how many households sit behind a single delivery point, and provide services to them accordingly. Without Multiple Residence, you could be unaware of how many households remain unaccounted for, simply because they share a mail box.
