    Landlord's address on tenancy agreeemnt

    I live quite near to my flats and have had some problems with criminal tenants so I am considering withholding my personal address from new tenants. Of course they have my phone number and email address for speedy communication with me. I am thinking of subscribing to a PO type address on the tenancy agreements such as MailBoxes Etc which would read as, for example, My name, Suite 64, Box 115, Branch address.." I am wondering if the agreement would still be legally valid. I am not a company and so cannot use a registered company address.

    (Assuming you're talking about a tenancy in England & Wales)

    You are required to notify your tenant of an address within England and Wales at which notices may be served on you by the tenant, or no rent is legally due. A PO Box is fine for such a purpose. However....

    On the tenant's written demand, you (or anyone who demand or received rent from the tenant on your behalf) are required to provide the landlord's name and address. Address means a person’s place of abode or place of business. Failure to comply within 21 days is a criminal offence with a maximum fine of £2,500.

      It would be easier not to select criminal tenants.

      These days with t'InterNet, social media it's easy to find people anyway. Plus Land registry deeds for £3.


      Don't be shy!

        On the other hand, I've never heard of anyone ever being prosecuted for this offence.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          Years ago, my father used to pick up his tenant mail at Barclays Bank. I wonder if they still offer that service.

            No, banks don't offer this service anymore.

            • Grade 2 listed - requirement for an EPC
              HantsAgent
              I have a potential client who wants me to rent his Grade 2 listed barn conversion. It's a lovely property and he currently has it on the market for sale with another agent.

              They currently have an EPC for it (even though I don't think they needed one) and it's score is F.

              After...

              I wonder how many perfectly good buildings (and cars, and fridges, and light fittings) have been scrapped or destroyed as a result of these environmental evangelists. I suspect they are responsible for a great deal of environmental destruction (both planetary destruction and destruction of our infrastructure)....

              Hi everyone,

              I've been renting a property out to a family and one of their friends for the last 2 years. The council have just told me that I should have applied for an HMO licence for the property as it now fits under new HMO rules. The problem is, that I remortgaged the property as a...

              a) Inform the mortgage company "I have been inadvertently fallen within a potential category of HMO through no wish of my own. My understanding is that it remains a single-let tenancy as there is only one AST and one single joint tenant. I am taking steps to evict the tenants as soon as possible....

              Single-let doesn't necessarily mean a single family, and HMO doesn't necessarily mean multiple tenancies. It's perfectly possible to be both single-let and HMO.

              What's the definition of single-let in your mortgage? If it just mean a single tenancy, is that what you have? If not, then you...

              Of course but the challenge is not that the safety is is not being observed because for example consider the gas equipment to be faulty in the property blows up house burnt down everybody loses so so for me I would like to think that this is common sense.

              requesting here appears to be and...

              I have to respond to this.

              Whether you are pro-landlord or pro-tenant, the safety of the occupiers are a hell of a lot more important than the ability of a landlord to evict a tenant without grounds....

              The general rules for HMOs in England and Wales are described at https://www.gov.uk/house-in-multiple-occupation-licence:

              [/LIST]So assuming that the friend of the family counts as a separate household, if there’s five or more people in the property, you probably need a licence. If there’s...
