Hello, you might wish to sign up to Land Registry’s free alert, when anyone makes a search on one of your properties:

https://propertyalert.landregistry.gov.uk/

There are rare cases of fraudsters / tenants changing their name by deed poll and approaching a solicitor to sell the property, as can be gleaned from the first 5 minutes of this 15 minute podcast –

They are targeting absent or older landlords and you can receive an alert on behalf of someone else – up to 10 properties free.

(However if you are flying under the radar as a Landlord you are telling gov.uk about your rented properties I guess!)
