Responsibility for property signage

Clear and legible property numbers and names are important to locate and reference properties. Local authorities must ensure that property number or name signage is in place in accordance with the SNN legislation. However, the legislation puts the responsibility on the owner to display the property number or name and the local authority can take enforcement action where this is not the case.
