Many people do not realise that a Thanet property is not just ‘known as’ a certain name or number. It needs to be registered with Thanet District Council.
Streets in Thanet are named and properties numbered when they are first constructed. From time to time it becomes necessary to make changes. We undertake negotiations with owners and developers. A change is never undertaken lightly because of the inconvenience it could cause.
There are many Thanet properties, which continue to use unregistered addresses. We are working to bring this figure down by contacting residents where possible to ask them to register their Thanet address.
Without a registered address you are likely to encounter problems with post, utilities, deliveries, internet ordering and, most importantly, emergency services.
