I like tenants who don't wreck the place

« on: June 26, 2020, 12:06:02 AM »

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me with this?

A tenant, now moved on, appears to have registered 3 companies at my property. Somebody else lives there now. Is there a way to get these companies off my address? Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks

I have dealt with Companies House before... I have found them very rigid and rather unhelpful. Even HMRC are better. For my 'company' (which is literally a freehold management company - we have no employees, we sell nothing, we make nothing, we provide no service, we have no income and only one expense - Buildings Insurance) they still insist on annual returns - two things at two different times of year (and a fee for completing that, which is another expense, I suppose)... whereas HMRC listened to my explanation and gave me a dormant company waiver for years and years. Companies House listened to the same explanation and told me it was still liable for those annual returns - despite it literally meaning nothing to anyone, and having zero value. I'd start there - but good luck.

How long ago is "now moved on"? If it's recent, first try contacting the ex-tenant to remain them to file updates with Companies House.

There was a page on gov.uk that used to read "You should get in touch with Companies House if you have concerns that: ... an unauthorised address is being used for a registered office or officer’s service address". A quick search now give only https://www.gov.uk/complain-company as page to make the contact, maybe there's another more appropriate page. What CH would do at most in reality are try to contact the directors, and if no response, yank the registration (eventually). Make sure the current tenant knows to return any mail regarding the companies addressed to the company or directors to CH.

Thanks for the replies. Recent is last September. I'm not in touch with him. He trashed my house and then tried not to pay anything from his deposit :( I'll get my agent to do it.. Thanks
