Name an existing property

Key facts:

We can help you to rename your existing property so that is recognised by Royal Mail, utility companies and other organisations.

When you apply we ask you to submit up to four alternative names (and a minimum of one alternative), and tell us the origin of the names. We ask for alternative names, just in case there is another similarly named property on the same street/road.

We aim to process applications for new house names/changes within ten working days, however if we have any queries we need to speak to the Royal Mail about, it can take a further five working days.

It costs £50 to name a property. Please have your credit or debit card handy - find out about fees.
