Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Who's name is on the tenancy agreement?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
Do you have a copy of the tenancy agreement? If yes, please attach it using the paperclip.
Who owns the property?
What lesson were you hoping to teach them?
Under what law?
I am sorry to disappoint you but there isn't a law that will allow anyone to be fined for making an error on a tenancy agreement. Particularly since you have drawn the error to their attention, they have acknowledged it and said they will chase up the new name.
Does that assist?
The question would actually be whether it was a simple error or an attempt to deceive. As you got what you bargained for (renting the property,paid your rent, got to live in the property), it is very likely to be viewed as an error, not fraud.
If you think they are tax evading, then you can report them to HMRC.
No, whether you brought it to their attention or not, there is no law that states that there is a fine available for putting the wrong information on the tenancy agreement.
The problems are most likely to be theirs - as if they wanted to evict you they would have to prove the company on the agreement existed and that it owned the property. If they couldn't do that, they couldn't evict you.

Unfortunately there is nothing you can do about the incorrect name on the agreement.
If you have not had full use of the property, you might have a claim for disrepair.
Kindly rate positively.
Your negative rating means I don't get paid for the time spent assisting you.
I appreciate the answer wasn't what you wanted, but it is accurate and I should be paid for my time.
It is possible to continue asking questions after you have rated - the rating is for the initial question asked, not all the follow ups.
