I am considering moving credit cards - I haven't done this for nearly 12 months now, would you suggest its work me going to Experian or Equifax for a report? For peace of mind perhaps?

I live in a flat, number 9A, however when I first moved in I had trouble getting a phone line because according to BT there is only a 9 or a 9B. It turned out that according to the postcode search they use I am number 9, (the phone works anyway), and when I used postcode searchers myself it's come up as 9 as well, so I told my bank my new address was 9. The problem now is that I've received the electoral registration form, which is for 9A, and also I started to apply for a card until it searched for my address and came up with 9A, so what should I do? Does the 'A' really matter? Should I change my address with my bank again, and tell BT they've got the wrong address and probably have for years?

I'm looking at requesting the statutory credit reports from the 3 main companies, but before I do, I've been looking at making sure that all my and my partner's addresses for bills etc match up with the electoral register which we're both registered on and were at our previous addresses as well. I've made sure that our mobile & broadband addresses match up, I was just wondering how exactly everything needs to match up. I'm providing the exact correct electoral addresses to the credit companies, but I've got a few queries. Firstly, on my broadband and mobile account I have not included my middle initial and can't change my name on the account, is this ok? Also how tight are the companies on the inclusion of Countys on addresses? For example on my bank account details (ive included the middle initial) but ive not currently included the county (in this instance Lancashire) Are there any other bills etc that I need to check that they match up as well?I can understand if there is confusion on the main part of an address (ie my previous address had 2 post codes for the front/back of the building, my home could be described as a flat or apartment, was in a building descibed as either number 72, 72-76, 72/76, and also had a name for the overall building!?!) but i was wondering how strict things are on the things I have mentioned?Many thanks if anyone can shine some light on this and help me out. You could say its stressing me out a bit!
