    Section 47 and 48

    Hi

    In order to invoice I understand there should be some wording along the lines of

    "In accordance with section 47 and 48 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987, the Landlords name and address in England and Wales for Service of Notices (including Notice in Proceedings) is ...."

    In the case of an RTM with an absent landlord what wording and address should be used.

    Many thanks

    James

    This is similar to the question I asked in a recent post. I had a glance at the legislation. Some parts state that references to the landlord are the RTM. Others state references to the landlord include the RTM. The latter applies to sections 47 and 48 suggesting that the addresses of both the landlord and the RTM should be stated side by side. Would be interested to know what others think.

      I think that the safest option is to supply the details of both the freeholder and the RTM. If there is an absent landlord, you should take steps to trace him, try either Companies House for a Company or a tracing agent for an individual.

        Does anyone know what action can be taken if the RTM company is not performing and refusing communication.

        Long story short, of the 6 apartments Tenant A owns 2 properties and refusing to pay (for no other reason than he doesnt want to). Tenants B & C will not pay because Tenant A is...

        Agreed and thanks very much for the advice. I have tried to be as amicable as possible but its time to play hard ball and lay out the options we currently have.

        I agree that you will not make yourself popular but ensuring that the property is insured is more important.

        A director could be held personally liable if he is neglecting his duties....

        To get a manager appointed by tribunal you have to follow the correct process (I.e. serve a preliminary notice first), and you need to be able to prove that the block isn't being managed properly, but you don't need anyone else to agree the course of action (except the tribunal).

        I live in a purpose built maisonette, of which there are two in the block – mine on the first floor, and the second on the ground floor, owned by the freeholder. The arrangement is that while the roof and the loft are demised to me, the freeholder is responsible for arranging repairs and splitting...

        If the work that is necessary potentially includes repairing/replacing the beams, spending a lesser amount patching things up is a waste of money.

        The freeholder is responsible for ensuring that the roof is repaired properly and you are each responsible for half the cost.
        You need...

        Ok so if I understand correctly I could singlehandedly apply to the FTT to appoint a manager? I wouldn't need approval from the RTM or any other leaseholders to do so? This is not something I particularly want to do as its a sure fire way to make me public enemy number one but perhaps the threat of...

        I would have thought that it is best to retain some say in who owns the land and what happens to that land. Alternatively, it must have some value so you could consider selling it. The Council could object to the Company being dissolved whilst there are covenants remaining....
