It's updated once a year. Not 100% reliable. if you get a list of occupants you have to do some more detective work such as call a directory enquiries and give the names. See if they have a telephone number listing or check if they own the property. You could even send a signed for letter via Royal Mail and then check if received online.
Visit the local library or history centre in that area. You may have to call them first, however you can see the full Electoral register showing occupants.

our informatiion includes other data as well in addition to voter's record. Online instant searches only show open Electoral Roll information.
You can add on a bonus which checks if there is a telephone listing or an ex-directory telephone listing. This often is a high indicator the person is still present at the address. We can even check who owns the property for you.
Not 100% reliable.
Better than an online search, however, you may not get occupancy dates for all. Just a residency score of very high, medium etc
Any person who may have moved in the last few months may still show as "very high" residency score, so you may need to request a new search in a few months.
