The problem is once you leave an apartment and new tenants move in when they register the commune removes your records and put new tenants. You shouldn't have stayed without an official address. I think its also illegal. Do you have the 5 years card? Maybe you could ask a lawyer for advise you might be able to prove you were resident but I guess it might be difficult.

When you move, you have to register your new address. You HAVE to stay registered. If there's a small gap, you can appeal. If it's a long(ish) gap, the counter is reset.

BTW - If you've worked for long enough, no language test required.

Why didn't you register with your friend?
It's completely allowed to register with friends you know.

I'm afraid you've caused this situation yourself and you won't be able to overcome this as you've effectively removed yourself from the national register by moving out and not registering where you moved to. Your gap is too large. A few days they'd allow.

I don't understand your reasoning behind not registering. I had a friend register with me no problems, no-one asked what size my house was! She was only there 2 months and no problems at all, similar situation, between her own apartments, it kept her registered.

It seems that your partner kicked you out of the appartment and reported you at the commune not being anymore resident. You have to register somewhere asap in order not to loose your status in Belgium. I think it will be very hard for you for nationality but at least you have to keep your status and work
