If you believe that someone is registered to your address but does not live there, you can request an address investigation. You request an address investigation online using DigiD. The municipality checks whether the data in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP) are correct.
What you need to know
You are the owner, tenant, landlord or occupant of the home.
Are you unaware of the name of the person who is wrongly registered to your address? You can still request an address investigation.
How it works
- You request an address investigation online (log in using DigiD or eIDAS).
- The municipality checks whether the data in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP) are correct. If this indicates there is an error, it will be corrected.
- A home visit by a supervisory official of the BRP and the sending of notices could be part of the address investigation.
- The time required for an investigation can vary. Some cases are clear very quickly. Other cases are more complicated, with the address investigation taking several months.
- The applicant does not receive any notice once the requested investigation has been completed. The applicant can inquire about the status of the investigation, however.
An address investigation is free of charge.
