When you purchase a new property, you can come across the issue of confusing addresses.
This is particularly so with larger new-build estates, and with residential more so than commercial. It often boils down to the different way that the original developer technically described the land and plots, against what the actual postal address then ends up being.
You can then end up with a real mish-mash of different variations of the address, which although tend to improve over time as people and databases slowly change, can still cause issues many years or even decades later. In the meantime there are all kinds of problems with people getting lost, satnavs giving false locations, and deliveries turning up somewhere else.
