There are lots of questions from people wanting to know if they can keep their old number when they move. I know we can't as we're moving out of the area. What I would like to know though is will the new people moving into our house get our old phone number if they don't request a new one? If so, can we request that this doesn't happen?

Hi @phil_the and welcome.
The numbers are owned by Openreach. Once your line stops the number goes back into a pool to be used on another order. The likelihood of it being used at the same property is tiny so you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
