            return View(address);
        }

Solution

It is happening on this line: return View(person);. You are sending a Model of type Person but you need to send a Model of RegisterViewModel. You need to send the correct Model to your View:

    public async Task<IActionResult> Edit(int? id)
    {
        RegisterViewModel register = new RegisterViewModel();
        if (id == null)
        {
            return NotFound();
        }

        var person = await _context.Person.FindAsync(id);
        if (person == null)
        {
            return NotFound();
        }
        register.Person = person;
        var address = await _context.Address.FindAsync(id);
        if (address == null)
        {
            return NotFound();
        }
        register.Address = address;
        return View(register);
    }
