Wrong address in tenancy agreement

We are in the process of obtaining a possession order due to non-payment of rent. The tenant's solicitor has noted (correctly) that the address in the tenancy agreement isn't the same as the place being rented. The actual address is '69 xxx Avenue' and the one on the tenancy agreement is '69a xxx Avenue'. The property is a ground floor flat. Because of this error, is the tenancy agreement invalid? Or can we write to the tenant and their solicitor to confirm the proper address?

Additionally, the front garden has been used as an adhoc parking space, but there is no planning permission to do so, as the kerb has not been dropped. There is currently a car there that has been parked long-term. Does the tenancy agreement automatically allow the tenant right of use of the front garden if not specified in the tenancy agreement, and what can we do if they are using it as a drive without planning permission? Ideally we would want the car to be removed.
