    Wrong landlord name on TA and deposit

    I have a tenant who has stopped paying his rent.  He was fine until he split from his partner Sad

    My letting agent has spoken to him and has recommend that I start the process to evict him. He sent me a copy of the information todiscuss with my solicitor (who returns from holiday tomorrow).

    The tenancy agreement and deposit protection information both show my name, but this is the first property I purchased through my company.  Is that likely to cause a problem?

    The LA sent the first months rent to my account rather than my company account but I got him to fix it for following months.

    Hi Peter

    Whoever purchased the property (Ltd Co or sole trader) doesn't also have to be named as landlord. Can't see a problem with you being named on AST and deposit. If it were in Co name then you'd be agent acting for Co anyway.

    Any RGI? Why has he stopped paying rent, is it affordability? If both parties were named on AST you can name both in court action to recover arrears. Good luck!

    A new AST was signed in June last year in just his name.  He wanted to keep the house so the children could visit, and paid for nearly a year.

    According to my LA the tenant is "going to pieces".

    You should be OK: Hope you have a document signed prior to AST from the company to yourself granting the right to rent the place out & agreeing the terms & conditions between company & you, the human (eg for how long, what you the human pay for this right etc etc etc etc...).

    Signed by two people - see...

    Tax might be interesting for both yourself & the company. 


    Bet there are LOADS of people/companies who are in a similar muddle (apologies, but it is...)

    I read that blog a couple of days ago but, as someone who is about to incorporate, I was hoping for a little more guidance on what I SHOULD be doing, rather than simply pointing out some of the things that other incorporated LL's are NOT doing (along with LA's as well, if his connjecture is to be believed).

    Does anyone have any bullet-points on the "right" way to go about things, for a Ltd Company, using a LA to sign-off on all paperwork?

    No such document as my intention was that the company be the landlord.
