    Bel, all the agent has to do is provide an Address.. it does not have to be the LL home address or business addy! So long as the tenant has an address to write to the LL it could be anywhere in the UK!! So by giving their addy they are fulfilling the obligation!

    Oh and on a serious note... I am NOT a Legal person and therefore anything I post could be complete and utter drivel... but its what I have learned in the University called Life!

      Justaboutsane; I am glad you are raising this issue because I would like to know what is correct.

      What is the point of this legislation if it doesn't mean the actual address of the LL?

      There is not much info on the web regarding what is a satisfactory address. One of my book references suggests that a c/o address will not suffice. A question/answer on landlord-law, suggests under section1, L&T 1985, that a business or residential address will do, as long as the tenant would be able to serve notice on the landlord by hand.

      Please if somebody could settle this (preferably with some legal back up), it would be great. Or I might have to start a new thread!

      The question is, under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, section 1; does the landlords name and address mean where they reside? Will an agents address do?

      I have found this on a similar subject

        YES. "Address" is defined in s.38. It means "a person's place of abode or place of business or, in the case of a company, its registered office".

          Still sat here waiting as you may have gathered upto now they have not been. I wonder why!

          Regarding LL address as I posted previously they will not give me a copy of my contract I have asked a neighbour who have not long moved in to see there's, to check for if they have an LL's address on but it does not, nor name of LL. So where do I stand if I have none of these?

            If you want to find out the landlords name and address:

            Step 1: Ask for the LL name and address in writing to the agent; you may wish to say that Section 1 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 makes it an offence not to disclose this information within 21 days.

            Step 2: If step 1 fails, or you want to know sooner, apply for info online http://www.landregisteronline.gov.uk/


            It occurred to me that 'the agents' may not even have instruction from the landlord to let the place, hence their heavy tactics. You may need advice from the Police. Shelter have an advice line too. Go to
            www.shelter.org.uk

              Criminal offence if L's address not disclosed in reply to s.1 Notice!

                      Hi again.

                      Quick question can the letting agency just get in touch with a maintenance company and tell the to go and change the locks on a property? They didn't even knock just started drilling away no court orders or bailiffs present and nothing in writing from agency or LL.

                        Is this your locks, keeping you out of the property? If so, you've been illegally evicted.

                          In which case you could get an emergency injunction- take legal advice AT ONCE.

                            As said luckily I was in called police they came and just told them to put a new lock on give me a key and go. Which obviously now they have given the spare to the Letting Agency. Wouldn't it be classed as breaking and entering as well?

                              These people sound like real nasties. DO seek legal advice and do so very quickly, before they try some other dirty tricks.

                              I suggest you change the locks yourself and DON'T pass any keys on to the agent, and do that quickly as well. Changing the mechanism in a standard Yale lock is a very simple task requiring little knowledge and very few tools - well worth it for the peace of mind it would buy you.

                              And first thing Monday, get round to the Citizens Advice Bureau and see if they can find you a property specialist solicitor to do a fixed fee interview.
