I know banks have got wise to mail box address and are refusing them for new applications.
Thank you Clunegapyears. Things are not as easy as they could be - lots of little complications. Address yes but cannot do electoral register as it would affect the single occupant. As you are literally doing fulltiming now, would it be possible in some way to contact you and have a chat - i can give you my email/phone number - whatever. I am spending hours and hours on the computer - and phone, trundling through insurance companies, searching and writing on forums like this. Going to see MH which really suits my needs and fab for the price but given my circumstances which are too labourious to type I'm really doubting whether to get it yet but don't want to lose it. Difficult at the mo.
There are many variations.
It would seem to me that there are some who...
1 Flout the law
2 pay no tax/NI
3 are not insured
4 simply do what they want.
I suspect Fairground travellers are fairly legit..
But I do not know.
Maybe "Channa" knows.u
The OP is trying to travel within the law/system but without paying exhorbitant insurance.
I say good luck with getting it sorted.
Make it plain to all concerned that you're not resident at the address concerned, it is merely a point of contact (as required by DVLA etc).We are going down this road soon .... house is on the market as we speak !!
I'm struggling to even get a relatives address as I don't want to get them involved and affecting them in anyway. My mum is a council tenant so was worried it might have an impact on her, my brother is in rental accommodation.
Thanks for an informative thread but I can't seem to get a head start

The person I use is both in "council" accommodation and on sickness benefits and no one has yet raised my registering there as an issue.
Yes, doctors, insurance, electoral register, state and other pensions, everything. No fuss, no bother. If anyone asks your mum, advise her to tell them that you don't live there she merely receives mail for you.Thank you very much Roger ... really ?? Does that go for any insurances and doctors etc ?
If that is the case i would probably like to use my mums address if she was willing .....
That, for a lot of people, is the biggest problem. There are certain requirements by government etc that we need to comply with to make life easier (driving licence, pensions etc). But how those requirements are complied with isn't specified. A lot of people put their own interpretation on what is required insgtead of keeping it simple.Probably because we have been so programmed to live so called 'normal' lives
lots of advice and guidance on this
think it can answer most questions asked on most forums.
