    Repairs notice query

    A weird scenario:
    asking for a friend.
    a family, with trustees in charge, owns a freehold property. One of the family members owned the lease but got into financial difficulties and the lease part got repossessed. After very long time remaining unsold the property, not managed by lenders or agents, became (externally) badly run down - imagine internal is bad too. So now the rest of the family want to protect their FH asset and serve repairs notice, potentially to follow up with forfeiture if repairs not carried out asap. The Lease is fully repairing, very strict on keeping property in top condition and if breaches are not remedied there is a clause allowing freeholders to serve for forfeiture. The question is - how would 1st notice (for repairs) be served? On the contractual leaseholder (the family member) or on the lawyers for lender in possession? Are there any potential legal problems the family may have?
