    Our tenant registered a Ltd Co at the property without telling us

    I've just discovered that the tenant that moved out last week had registered a Ltd Company at our property in contravention of their tenancy agreement. What detrimental affects might this have on us (I'm thinking it could show up on credit checks and affect future financing for one) and what action can I take against the tenant (probably nothing)? We are currently in deposit dispute for various other issues, cleaning, damage etc (they also checked out a day late)

    Checking out a day late may entitle you to a further tenancy periods rent?

    The company shouldn't be an issue - have you checked if it is still registered at that address?

      I checked at Companies House and it is registered at our address. If the contract expressly forbids registering a business but I can't do anything about it when the tenant does so, it's a pointless clause really?

        I would forget the checking out 24 hours late, you are not going to
        get one months extra rent for a 24 hour overstay, and I dont think
        you would have lost any money, as you KNEW he was leaving, and
        he has left. You would not have had a tenant move in a day after he
        left, as you have repairs to do, so you have lost nothing.
        Not worth the hassle.

        Regarding a Limited Company.
        If he was not botherd about your property ( damage ) then he wont
        be botherd to go bankrupt, and have companies house writing to you,
        debtors writing to that address, debt collection agents knocking on
        the door of your next tenant, telling him he is a liar when he says he
        is not the person they are looking for.
        An on and on it goes.

        I would write to companies house.
        Companies House

        Stating that the limited company / name is no longer at your rented
        property. You will still get letters if the leaving tenant hasnot changed his registered office address.
        If you are lucky, he may have changed his address on file, and
        thats the last you will hear of it.
        But you can never be sure of what illegal moves he made, and if
        any debtors try to put a "charge" on your property for unpaid
        bills.... you could have a problem, but as property is not in the
        name of the ex-tenant, you wil be o.k.
        But above "could" be some of the problems that may occur, but as said, you should be immune from charges and prosecution.

        R.a.M.
