Living with someone else

Are you going to live in someone else's house without a rental agreement? To register at that address, you need permission by the owner or one of the adult residents.

This permission is also required for:

  • Living with your parents.
  • Living with your partner at his/her rental address (even if you are married to your partner or have a registered partnership).
This is how you report living with someone else

You report the change of address online with the owner or one of the adult residents of the address. Keep both your DigiD’s to hand.
