    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.

              Rddnll
              Hi, we’ve rented our current property (3 bedroom house with a garden) for 1 year. We tried to buy a house but the sale fell through so 2 weeks ago signed the renewal for another year. The landlord has also put the rent up by another £20 which is annoying but happy to pay. We rent through an agency...

              It's hard to imagine you have any grounds to complain.

              Do you not think that being given wrong information by Council employees is sufficient? How about incorrect information on their website?

              I am a LH in a block of 5 flats. Each LH pays £100 pm into the Management Company a/c for purpose of maintenance. The freeholder who is also a LH has been spending money without agreement from me. Is the Freeholder allowed to do this? I have challenged the FH on this who has said the majority of the...

              The railings were not necessary and purely to make the property ‘look better’. I’m confused when you mention the managing agent? As far as I’m aware the LH’s set up the Management Company themselves and therefore there is no managing agent. Thank you for your advice I will look up RICS.

              Hello, I am looking for advice regarding a tenant who initially told me in December that he had been in hospital for 2 weeks for an operation on his nose and would not be able to pay his rent until January 2017 saying he will have to stay in hospital longer another 2 weeks at their request and as a...

              Hello again thank you DPT57 for your reply, the tenancy is room only. Things have escalated in that an incident has taken place in that the tenant has now obstructed one of the other tenants in the house from moving to a vacant larger room which I’ve agreed to. When he attempted to move into the room...

              Bit of an odd one here. I moved into a house a few months ago and have come to learn I actually share it with quite a few tiny housemates. I'll probably see up to 5 woodlice most days walking around the lounge and hallway downstairs, both laminate. From a personal perspective I'm not bothered by them...

              Thanks jpkeates and nukecad. I've let the LL know to make them aware. I don't mind crawlies myself as long as they stay out the kitchen and bedroom.

              We cannot read your lease from here.

              You seem to have a tail wagging the dog. The management company controls the managing agent, not the other way round, although, in a good relationship, the agent will advise and the management company will agree.

              The work on the railings...
