If you wish to name or rename your property you will need to make a request to the Street Naming and Numbering (SNN) team. You can do this by using our house name change form or by calling 01256 844844.
There will be a fee of £25.75 for applications to add a property name to a property that has already been allocated a postal number. Payment can be made when you complete the house name change form, by calling 01256 844844 or by cheque made payable to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
All requests should be accompanied by a plan of the property’s location.
Records are checked to establish that the preferred house name is not duplicated within the immediate area. The team will confirm the amended address and notify:
- Royal Mail
- HM Land Registry
- Emergency services
- Council Tax and Electoral Services department
It should be noted that if you wish to name a property which has already been allocated a postal number, that postal number must remain part of the official property address and cannot be dropped in favour of using the house name alone.
