Description

For example "Pepleri 21" returns only https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/226264807 even under "More results", even though looking at the map data https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/30234940 looks also a good candidate.

Both buildings are found, but as a last step one gets removed as duplicate. You can switch off that behavior by adding &dedupe=0

Example: http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search.php?q=Pepleri+21%2C+Tartu&dedupe=0

Duplicates are removed when their name, OSM type and admin level are the same. The less important result gets removed but for these two buildings the importance score would be the same so which one gets removed can be random.
