    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.

              Hello, this is my first post.

              I am about send a notice to quit to my tenants, they have been there for over 3 years. The tenancy began on the 27th day of the month. My question is, does it have to end on the 27th or can it end on any day of the month, say the 2nd?

              Thanks...

              I have a friend who has rented a property on an assured shorthold tenancy for 3 years now. The tenancy has long expired and so has automatically converted into a periodic tenancy.

              Recently following an inspection the boiler in the property was condemned and switched off as a result. She...

              She seems to have her own ideas of how the law works, else she is trying to convince you that's how the law works.

              You have told her she can't just write that she is putting it up without your friends agreement and your friend doesn't have to leave if she doesn't pay the increase. No need...

              She also refuses to issue the section 13 notice that I asked for and said the rent is going regardless, although she has now changed it to the 1st April as I said the 1st March was not enough notice....

              We have offered her 11 different dates to come and inspect, she is saying no I am coming on this date at this time. My friend has no problem with her inspecting but she wants to be home at the time and she wants me there to translate and I don’t finish work until 5pm. We have asked her to come at...

              The tenant would be in breach of their obligations. The landlord's remedy would be to start eviction proceedings for breach of covenant. However, if a reasonable alternative time had been proposed, I don't think the court would grant possession as a result.

              On the other hand, from the...

              From that email she isn't saying she will enter if noone lets her in. She is being vague about what she will do. In theory she could get a court order to gain entry. But if you have given her alternative times for access then this would be silly.

              Based on what she says in the email I don't...
