What system is used to check addresses?

We use a database called Loqate (previously called Postcode Anywhere) to check addresses. 

 

What are the issues that can be flagged?

There are three issues that can be flagged with addresses:

  • Incomplete - The address is missing. Click on the address to add it.
  • Error - The address couldn't be found. You can either amend the address or ignore the error (see the section below)
  • Warning - There's a formatting issue with the address. Click on the address to see suggestions and amend it.
