The tenant has a legal right to know LL's name and an address inEngland or Wales at which notices may be served on the LL. It does not have to be your home address, but it must be somewhere where you can pick up post e.g. a solicitor's or agent's office. As far as I know that address could appear on the s21.

If your prop is a licensable HMO, your name and (I think) your home address must appear in a public record of HMO landlords for that council.
