A address enquiry examines whether one or more persons at a given address are registered in the Basic Registration of Persons (BRP) and whether they actually live there.

You can request a address enquiry from the municipality in the following cases:

  • Someone is registered at your address who does not live there.
  • Someone has a letter address at your address and you can no longer reach that person.
  • Someone has a letter address at your address and you want to revoke your permission for the letter address.
