What is Multiple Residence Data?


Royal Mail’s Multiple Residence dataset provides a detailed address structure for properties that sit behind a single front door, for example apartment blocks, university halls of residence and self-contained flats.

By using Royal Mail’s Multiple Residence Data in your address validation tool, you will be able to capture and verify any premise where multiple households share a letter box, ensuring more accurate deliveries first time.

With almost a quarter of all housing in the UK being made up of flats, and on average over 2,000 new records  added each month, this data set is crucial for any businesses with customers in large, densely populated areas.
