Status: in use

Use addr:flats=* for marking range of numbers of flats behind a door, for example, addr:flats=1-20. If there is gap in numeration, mark numbers and intervals with semicolon: addr:flats=3-7;10;14;16-18.

If there is only one flat, the tag addr:unit=* is normally used instead.

A leading semicolon can be used when a flat number is implicit. For example a house at '10 Some Street' converted into 3 flats with postal addresses of '10 Some Street', 'Flat 1, 10 Some Street' and 'Flat 2, 10 Some Street' can be tagged addr:flats=;1-2 and addr:housenumber=10.
