    Do i need to give Forwarding Address?

    Hi All

    I am just wondering do i have to give my landlord a forwarding address, he demands one but am sure by law it is not required, am on a Assured
    shorthold Tenancy

    Thanks

    No, but if he has a legal need to contact you and you have not provided one, you may end up having to pay the cost of locating you (easy).

    The landlord has obligations to provide you with his details, why should that not be reciprocated?

      If LL is required to serve any Notice/papers. he is entitled to serve them at your last known address ie his/your rental address. It is up to T to arrange re-direction of mail, or provide LL with bona fide forwarding address.

        A court claim may only be served at the 'last known address' if the claimant has first tried, and failed, to ascertain the defendant's current address, e.g. using a tracing agent.

          Thanks for all your replies i decided to tell him my forwarding address as i owe £150 in arreas, i have offered a small repayment plan in writing but waiting for a reply, as i am on unemployed at the moment and i have very little coming in? (JSA) as LANDLORDS how much would you expect a week off the tennant?

            Local councils in such circumstances normally only get £3-5 a week.

            Offer £3: chances are he won't then take court action.
            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...
