      Quoting from the link I already gave you:

      (1)If the interest of the landlord under a tenancy of premises which consist of or include a dwelling is assigned, the new landlord shall give notice in writing of the assignment, and of his name and address, to the tenant not later than the next day on which rent is payable under the tenancy or, if that is within two months of the assignment, the end of that period of two months.

        Whether the new freeholder has to inform you that he is the new freeholder has already been answered:

        There is no requirement for a solicitor to issue the notice. The relevant legislation is https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1985/70/section/3
        He needs to inform you before any rent or service charge payments become due, or within two months of acquiring the freehold (whichever is the later - although if he sends demands out within two months they won't be payable if the freeholders name and an address for service of notices is not given on the demand).

          Ok you have been most helpful. Thankyou for your time and patience with me. Do you know if his address can be his place of work as in the takeaway or does it have to be his home address. ??

                Can I double check that this is the freehold title, and not information held against your leasehold title?

                If so, something is seriously wrong.

                    by Paulsen
                    I am remortgaging my flat and the solicitor has sent a letter to the freeholder asking for a notice fee. I have done it directly to the freeholder and not the MA as we both are in dispute with the old MA and are doing a joint complaint. She probably wouldn’t know how much to ask for and I asked my...

                    by Section20z
                    The question of the fee is invariably asked with the standard LPE1 enquiries and therefore comes as no surprise and there is no justification for subsequently not paying it. The example I gave above referred to an auction purchase where a foolish purchaser failed their due diligence....

                    If you ask the freeholder what his fee is there is no obligation to respond. You do not though want to be asking. Just get on and serve the notice and (a) if the fee is fixed pay the amount specified; (b) if a minimum fee is specified pay the minimum; (c) if a reasonable fee is specified send £10; (d)...

                    Can the Freeholder ignore the request of a notice fee? What happens if they don’t respond?

                    Hi my lease is similar, would the fee be payable every time you get a new tenant? Does it have to be requested by the freeholder?

                    I own a leasehold flat which is renedt out on an AST and my freeholder is constantly finding new ways in which to nickle and dime us leaseholders for extra costs. The latest is a 'Subletting Licence' for which an annual rent of £48.00 is charged. The freeholder cites a clause in my lease relating

                    by Lawcruncher
                    • Even though there will be no increase in value of the property following this work, would the Freeholder be entitled to still ask me for money in exchange for permission?

                    Since the lease says that you must not make alterations without consent, the consent must not be unreasonably withheld....

                  • Removing Stud Wall in Leasehold Flat
                    by Sharon
                    Hello, I would like to remove a non-load-bearing stud wall in my flat. It will change the layout inasmuch as I will be stealing some of the space from my entrance hall and creating a larger living room as a result. So no real increase in value of the property as a result, just a matter of taste....

                    I thought there was a judgement that such charges could be increased in line with inflation even if the lease did not provide for it.
                    (sorry, no reference, just recalling, maybe imperfectly, replies to a thread in the last couple of years)....
