    hi does anyone on here use an accommodation address? I left my last permanent address three months ago and as I applied for a refund on my community charge the local council have removed me from the voters register.

    My mail forwarding at the moment goes to a business address but this will close next month (as Im now retired) So can anyone recommend a good secure address that will forward on the post, to camp sites etc?

    I know narrow boat users have a system where its forwarded to marinas etc what about MH any users use anything similar?

    I'm a sad git I dont have any relatives who can help.... dont even ask :Laughing:

    I have looked at this in-depth, When I full time I will Probably use someone like this
    http://www.mbe.co.uk/york
    They have quite a few depots around the UK

    I even tried the van insurance from the York Address, it was around £100 more a year then I pay now but it was accepted as an address for me

    Yeah I thought of mailboxes plc but you have to have a box number etc - which you cant use on your driving licence etc. Many years ago i used an address in Kentish Town (north London) lady there used to just post anything onto me and it was just an ordinary postal address - she used to advertise in the old exchange and mart magazine

    I think that being removed from the voters register will play havoc with your credit rating.

    I use these but in Sheffield. Have done for 4 years now.

    Last year the DVLA got in touch and told me the address was no longer acceptable. I have to use a relative for my driving license now.

    Hi Deckard no solution as yet (been too busy travelling) must get it sorted - I am still using the business address for post but have now found out HMRC will not allow me to use it as my main address but can use it as a correspondence address - which dosnt make sense to me.

    yes, strange one that....

    if you aren't on the voting register you cant get regular credit as you dont have a confirmed address, yet the council still take the council tax off you.

    I didnt realise i wasnt on the register (i refuse to vote) until i applied for a credit card only to be refused on those grounds.

    5 min phonecall to the town hall sorted that out.

    Just wondered

    If you are taken off the voting register.

    Why did I get letters from three political partys in the UK.

    Saying As an ex pat i can still vote in the UK via the area at my last known address in the UK.

    Thats in the days there where different political partys.

    Now they all belong to the F--- you I'm alright Jack party.

    Credit rating is only if you need credit
    Not many who full time. Go borrowing large sums of money
