One common problem at the end of a tenancy, when the tenants have moved out particularly for rent arrears, you find that you start getting reminders from utility companies and the local authority for unpaid bills. In such circumstances, under the Data Protection Act, you must not give the creditors the forwarding address of the tenants. If the bill is in the name of the tenant, then it is the tenant who is the debtor, and thus not the landlordís concern. If, however, the tenant did not get the supply or responsibility put in his own name, send a letter of explanation to the creditor, together with a copy of the relevant tenancy agreement. It is then up to the creditor to chase their own debtor.
