I’d like to suggest adding a new area-type, named Residential Property, which would be used to mark out residential property boundaries (typically, the garden).
Property names (generally, door numbers) would then be associated with the residential property (not the building).
This would solve the problem where multiple properties are in the same building, as the Residential Property area splits the building up implicitly.
Below is an example, using Garden areas to illustrate how this would work:
This also adds useful information to the map, and helps to fill the space with contiguous areas that indicate the shape of the street etc.
