I'm moving in to a new property as a tenant. In order to help

This answer was rated:

I'm moving in to a new property as a tenant. In order to help pay the rent, I'm renting one of the two bedrooms to a lodger.
I've bought a lodger agreement, we've agreed all terms, and signed, however, at the very top of the form, it requires me to print my name, and next to that, it says, 'of', followed by a space that requires filling in. I assume this means 'of which address'. Does that sound correct? And, if so, do I put the address I'm currently living at, or the address I'm shortly to move in to, which the lodger is also shortly to move in to?
If you need me to clarify anything, just say.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Yes, it does refer to your address.
Normally you just add the address at which you were living at the time of signing. It is just a means of identifying you.
Can I clarify anything for you?

Ok, that's pretty clear, thanks.

So, if we (i.e. me, the tenant, and the lodger) print our names, alongside our current addresses, the lodger agreement will still be valid for the property we're moving in to? As I'm pretty sure it's not mentioned elsewhere in the document.

Oh yes. The address is not particularly important in truth. It is just a means of identifying you and distinguishing you for others of your name.
