    Default Landlord Name on S48 notice

    In my tenancy agreements, i always include my name and address to comply with S48 (I forget exactly which act - LTA 1987?). It is the only place I use my own name rather than my trading as name. Eg all my documentation refers to "Rachmann Estates" (no not really my trading name), but my S48 notice reads;

    Mr Robin B'stard T/A Rachmann Estates

    Do I need to have the my name T/A bit there or can I just refer to Rachmann Estates?

    The S.48 is a requirement just for an address in England & Wales to be given where the tenant might serve Notices on the landlord, but if the landlord's name or address is not shown the tenant could then make a written request under S.1 L&T Act 1985 and it must be complied with within 21 days otherwise it's a criminal offence not to do so. Remember also for £3 a tenant can make a search of the Land Registry to find the identity of the registered owner.
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

    From business link:

    "There is no requirement for sole traders to register a business name. They can trade under their own names or choose a different business name. However, if as a sole trader you choose something other than your own name for the business, you must include your own name and the business address on all business letters, orders and receipts"

    I would think this includes a rental agreement.
    All posts in good faith, but do not rely on them

    Thanks both. I'll leave the name as is on the agreement.

    Address rules differ between 1985 and 1987 Acts, too. See http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums...ad.php?t=17602.

    Sorry Jeffrey, but your link goes nowhere.
    On some things I am very knowledgeable, on other things I am stupid. Trouble is, sometimes I discover that the former is the latter or vice versa, and I don't know this until later - maybe even much later. Because of the number of posts I have done, I am now a Senior Member. However, read anything I write with the above in mind.
