How to use the Address Search Facility

In the “Search for a location” box just enter your house number, street, area or postcode and select “Find"

My Milton Keynes will accept any one of the following parts of an address:

  • Part/all of the first line of an address e.g. "6 Kaplan", "6 Kaplan close", “Kaplan 6”;
  • Postcode e.g. “MK5 7ED”;
  • Property name, especially if less common e.g. '”Rose Cottage”;
  • Street name, more useful for smaller streets e.g. “Rycroft”;
  • Property number, more useful for unusual numbers e.g. “20a”;
  • Location name, useful for finding properties within a village e.g. “Ravenstone”.

When entering address details:

  • Don't worry about case - searches can be done using capitals and/or lower case letters;
  • Complete your words e.g. for a street name or postcode;
  • and do not enter a full address - there is less chance of finding the address you want due to possible spelling mistakes / variations and how the address is structured in the database.

For any address information entered, a list of suggested addresses will automatically appear below the entry box.
