As a tenant you have the right to know the name and address of your landlord.
Ask the letting agent
If you pay your rent to a letting agent, they must give you the landlord's name and address if you write to ask for it.
Keep a copy of your letter, and if you don't deliver it by hand get proof of delivery.
The agent has 21 days to write to you with the information. If they do not reply within this time, they are committing a criminal offence and could be fined up to £2,500.

Search the internet
Google the landlord's name. Be aware that the information you find online might not be accurate or up-to-date. You might find several people with the same name.
Search 192.com for names and addresses based on information from electoral rolls, phone directories and Companies House
It's free to search the 192 directory, but you must pay a fee to access more detailed information
