Hi.
Just wondering if I am able to request my landlord's name and address with a view to contacting them for a house offer without involving REA?

Victoria.

The name and address of our LL is on our lease... and I think the name might also be on our inspection reports too (this is in ACT).

Have you checked yours?

Im in Victoria and my landlords details are on my rental agreement.

The REA has told us that the landlord is not a nice person to deal with so i go through the REA for everything.

Or send a letter via the RE marked owners private and confidential?

Ok, so have checked my rental agreement.
Landlord's address is c/o the REA.
So if I did send a letter with Landlord's name marked Private and Confidential.....

...How confident are you that REA will not open said letter and will forward it to the Landlord??

Ha !

Not too confident!!

Why not google/facebook/whitepages/electoral roll the person  - see if you can track them down that way.

I would not be very confident of that.  Have you tried the white pages, council, google, facebook?

I had a dodgy real estate agent so I checked the lease for the landlords name and used white pages to locate them. Sent them a letter.

Unsure about going htrough the REA.

Just to clarify - you can no longer use the electoral roll available at the AEC to find someone's address.   They only allow you to check the roll if you want to complain someone is wrongly enrolled.

(I *believe* if you can get access to an old version, say at a library, you might be able to use it for that.)

Interesting, I might update my details then, as I didn't want my ex to know where I was currently living.

Check your lease agreement / the contract is between the tenant and the owners so it should have their contact details on it.

You MAY find that your lease has a clause in it along the lines of if the tenant at any time purchases the property, then the leasing agent is entitled to an x% commission (as they have basically performed the introduction). It is not in the standard lease agreement, but I have heard of it being added twice recently.

You could always just ask your REA to ask your LL to call you directly? No need to explain why...

If you really want to bypass the agent, try RPData.com but you may have to pay a fee to get the information/report.
