For addresses which do not have a house number (for example "snc" = "senza numero civico" in Italian, "s/n" = "sin número" in Spanish and "sem número" in Portuguese) you can add nohousenumber=yes. This is useful to explicitly state that there is no house number (verified).

Do not add addr:housenumber=snc or similar.

How to map

It is mainly used with buildings. Street Complete asks for house numbers in its quests.

Add nohousenumber=yes to the address and keep addr:housenumber=* empty.

Do not use this tag if you are unsure about the house number or if there is a house number assigned but not signposted. It should also be avoided to tag nohousenumber=no to features which do have a house number assigned.
