Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

Our previous tenant was evicted back in 11th October 2014 for non-payment of rent leaving four thousand pounds repair bill, and no forwarding address. The property was repaired and a new tenant moved in 22nd September. The new tenant has just informed me that the previous tenant has visited the property demanding their letters, and subsequently returned early one morning banging on the front door again demanding their letters. Since the previous tenant was evicted, all their letters have been returned to sender with a note included that the addressee was no longer residing at this address, and that there was no known address.
My question is, is it not part of the eviction notice that the tenant does not return to the address?
I have notified the new tenant that if the previous tenant returns, they should leave their new address so that any further letters can be forward to them. Alternatively, they could go to the post office and request that any letters with their name on can be redirected.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated?
