AddressBase Premium

Benefits and key features

  • Benefit from the most comprehensive view of the world of addresses throughout the property lifecycle – from planning permission, through construction, occupation, change of use to demolition and beyond.
  • Enable your front-line staff to look up addresses – querying a database of millions – quickly and accurately.
  • Undertake risk analysis down to the level of individual addresses to spot patterns hidden in your data.
  • Understand the type of property at each address to which Royal Mail delivers mail.
  • If you're in the public sector, your organisation can use it at no extra charge thanks to our mapping agreements.

AddressBase Premium is produced in partnership with GeoPlace and the Local Government Association.

Provisional addresses

Alternative addresses

Alternative addresses

Historic addresses

Detect fraud if somebody tries to insure a property that no longer exists – or mortgage risk if the address used to be a brownfield site.
