    Landlord Change template letter

    Hi all I have just joined the forum so apologies if this has been posted previously. Is there a template letter to inform tenants of a new landlord? I believe this letter is a legal obligation under Section 3 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985. Some help please.

    And s48. Sometimes one will do.

    S48 or no rent due, S3 possible fines and criminal record, sadly not often enough enforced.

    When do tenants say they 1st moved in? Was purchase price a bit cheap?

        Have a look in the documents section of the forum.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          Actually this has always puzzled me. The status as landlord is not down to ownership. It is whoever it is stated to be. So if someone purchases a property and fails to inform tenant (formally) the landlord will simply remain the previous owner. So why should rent not be due (to the previous owner) and why should it be a "criminal offense"?

          The thing seems circular - "fail to inform that landlord has changed" -- but landlord has not changed - until it does.

          There might be special circumstances if L ceases to exist (dies) but even then it is arguable whether L has "changed" when it becomes their estate.

            Fair enough, but it's a criminal offence because the law says so.

              I have a current situation where my freeholder has not served such a notice and I brought it to the attention of my solicitor (litigator), who says it doesn't matter and I am liable to pay.... In view of the grief /costs this FH has given me, I am reluctant to pay anything I don't have to. I'm very surprised by the solicitor's opinion.
