No not at all - even a buy to let would need to have a name attached on the deeds - and the deeds will always show the address to which the deeds relate to - it could simply be that they have not updated their address OR that its still their only owned residence - the main concern would be for council tax - and where and who this is paid on - that,s the real measure of a persons actual abode (so to speak)
But as far as the land registry and the deeds are concerned - this would have no law breaking consequences arising.
