    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.
    I am not a lawyer, nor am I licensed to provide any regulated advice. None of my posts should be treated as legal or financial advice.

    I do not answer questions through private messages which should be posted publicly on the forum.

      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.

              Hi

              I have rented my mother’s house out to 2 x lodgers on my mother’s behalf as she has been hospitalised due to mental medical condition. A lodger agreement was given to them as she was expected to return back in few weeks’ time. However situation had changed and she had to live out...

              With 'experts' like ours you don't need enemies. Ignore what you can see happened in China and Italy and what the WHO and every other health expert says and deliberately allow it spread to create herd immunity. I'm glad BJ listened to popular opinion and reversed this policy.
              These are same experts...

              by jpkeates
              Welcome Lillylisa.

              I would simply decline their request. You are under no obligation to reduce the rent.
              The tenants are simply taking the mickey.

              If they want the rent reduced for a short period and then to pay increased rent to pay you back, that's one thing, but I...

              by Stew
              Thanks for all the responses, I notice on the contract there is also an option to have a six months contract with a mutual break clause at six months which does not make sense to me so will remove the mutual break clause and just go with the fixed six months then rolling.

              All the best ...

              Please explain why you have to pay a termination fee.

              Do not be browbeaten into doing something you do not want to do. I am afraid that many letting agents are experts at browbeating tenants. If and when they serve notice is the time to contact the landlord. In any event, as things stand...
