    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.

        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.

            • Cat Urine Smell
              Lucymcmullen
              Hi All, I am looking for some advise please. I've just rented a house and there is a very strong cat urine smell that is unbearable. The house stank when I viewed it but the previous tenant was still there at the time with the cats so I assumed the smell was coming from the litter box. I was informed...

              It might be a good idea to find out where exactly the cat pee is using a UV light. Then treat with bleach multiple times. There are cat urine eliminators out there but I have never found them effective. Eventually the smell will go but I thoroughly recommend the bleach method.

              Hi
              Tenants are leaving so looking for new ones for a 2 bedroom flat.
              I usually use state agents and they found 2 single guys which I met last Friday. Both engineers, mid 20s with masters degree and working for the same reasonably medium size company who employ 700 people. Both pleasant...

              I am accepting them but having rent guarantee insurance in case plus as above 2 months inspections. I also asked the estate agent to add a condition where to ask me if they want to add any bulky furniture except study desks for each bedroom which they wanted me to supply but I refused.

              Q1 – Where is the rented property located (England / Wales / Scotland / N Ireland)?
              Q2 – What type of Tenancy Agreement (TA) is this e.g. sole tenant / multiple tenant / room only?
              Q3 – What date did current TA start dd/mm/yy?
              Q4 – How long was initial fixed term (6/12/24 months...

              There isn't (as far as I know) any accepted definition for someone moving out and back in.
              It would be (I think) something that would be decided on the facts of the specific issue.

              If your last tenancy agreement says that there is no deposit, I'd rely on that.
              You can always...

              Cat urine is a health hazard.
              Whether it's serious enough a hazard to make a property uninhabitable isn't something I know enough to comment on.

              On a practical level, the flooring and carpets need to be replaced.
              Bicarbonate of Soda will dry out the carpets and floor and kill...

              What is the legally accepted definition of the tenants moving out of a property and cessation of previous TA ?
              Would it be written notice from the tenant giving date of leaving ?
              Or would T have to vacate the property for a certain amount of time ?
              How could I legally put an end to...

              If there is no health hazard, I would have thought it was lettable, but with significantly depressed market rent.

              Bicarbonate of soda is the way to deal with this as mentioned above - but if it has soaked through to the floorboard all floor coverings will need to be removed first & then replaced once the floorboards have been scrubbed.

              The smell, whilst unpleasant, is not a health hazard if the...
