    Tenants forwarding address

    Hi, Can anyone tell me if I am allowed to let utilities, council tax and others know that tenants have moved on?

    I am currently forwarding letters on (some three months later) with no sign of the tenants advising these companies.
    Many thanks,
    Marc

    You should always tell all interested parties they have moved on, especially the Council tax office. Any mail you get just mark it as gone away , return to sender, or whatever and put it back in the box.
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

      There is usually a clause in tenancy agreements which allows you to give forwarding addresses, copies of TA, etc (to prove who lived in the property & when) to utility companies, service providers such as telephone/broadband companies & the council. This clause (which they will have signed up to, obviously) stops the tenants claiming that you have breached the Data Protection Act, I think.

      If your TA does not contain such a clause, I'm not sure where you stand.
