Each property in England and Wales will have received a Census Pack.
If you own a 2nd home or a holiday let it is likely that due to lockdown you will not have been able to visit the property to pick up your census pack.
You still need to complete a census questionnaire for the property, even if it is empty in terms of you’ve not been able to stay there or let it out for holiday use.
If your second property is a holiday home that is only for your use, you’re responsible for filling in the census form sent to that address as well as the one sent to your other address.
If you can’t get the post from a property, you can complete the census online by requesting an access code for that address to be sent to you by text.
If no one was staying there overnight on Sunday 21 March 2021, you will only need to answer a few questions about that property.
Away from your property
You should fill in a census form for this address if:
- you’re still in the UK
- you’re outside the UK for less than 12 months
You don’t need to fill in the census form if you’re away for 12 months or more, and outside the UK.
