    How to find and address?

    Hi guys. Ex tenants (a young couple) caused substantial damage to my property and I am wanting to issue a 'Small Claims' online. Problem being is I don't know their current address, they told me they don't have a permanent address because the moving around staying with different friends (almost certainly a lie). Anyway I know their parents names and can see them listed on the Electoral Register on 192.com but that website is complete crap and won't even allow me to register. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Try again, it works fine.
    Or serve against last known address. You can let them know if they want to defend it its in thier interest to provide an address

      If you are not able to find them through a bit of amateur sleuthing, the standard approach is to use a tracing agent.

      As above, not having their new address does not preclude the use of MCOL. Using their last known address (even if you know they are no longer there) is legitimate. Do everything by the book ; you may have to rely on it in court later.
      There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.

        As others have stated:

        1. Use a tracing company to locate the T(s), but this will only work if they register with a council, otherwise it wont deliver any results. If the T(s) work and still with the same employer this may help in tracing.

        2. Use the last known address that you have (the property which they left).

          192.com works fine for me.
          Otherwise, try a tracing company - there's a directory listing on this website.
          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).

            The glue on envelopes these days is terrible: Had tenants leave in circumstances of unpaid rent.. HMRC letters later arrived & "fell open" on the mat, I couldn't help noticing name of employer: A small hotel chain, he was a chef. Three 'phone calls later & found him..

            Sheriffs' officer (Scotland, similar to English court bailiffs..) said he turned white when paperwork served....
            I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...
