    Finding a landlords details

    We have a house where there are new tenants causing all sorts of problems and I need to contact the landlord.

    I have checked with the local letting agents and come up with nothing.

    I have the details from the land registry and the owner is registered to the property address!

    I have also googles and checked companies house, with no luck.

    Any ideas?

    Have you knocked on some of the neighbors and asked them ? The landlord is rather foolish if he or she has not got a different correspondence address other than the let property, there have been cases where tenants have attempted to sell the rented house !!!! As all land registry paperwork goes to the address they occupy, very dangerous.

    What issues are they causing ??

      Neighbours, local shops, postman... Social media...

      He's either very stupid or on the fiddle or both.

      I do not have googles.

        Hudson01,

        Yes have tried the neighbours. The the tenants are breaching a restrictive covenant by parking in the road blocking access to other properties. The property is on a private road with well defined restrictions and stipulations.

        I have tried to speak to them as have other neighbours and just got abuse. I will now be formally writing to them. The next step is then getting solicitors involved, however, I would prefer to speak to the landlord first as I'm sure they wouldn't want to go down that road.

          theartfullodger,

          Have tried that. Landlord unknown to neighbours. They have seen her at the property a couple of times and that is it. I have only seen her once.

          Not had a problem with the previous tenants.

            I suspect the landlord used to live there and has forgotten to change his address with the land registry , easily done.

            Quite possible that the landlord didnt put the restrictive covenant in the tenancy agreemnet or they are just ignoring it - is there anywhere else that they could park in order the keep the peace ?

            The council tax dept should have landlords address -
            Social media ? linkden ?

              The landlord has never lived at the property. She bought it in 2016 and has rented it out since. There is one parking space associated with the property which they also use. The issue is they have several cars and only one space.

                There is a Restrictive Covenant about parking on a private road on a property I have bought It appears the the developer who bought the land put the Restrictive Covenant on it and as I understand it is now Un-enforceable as the developer was a Ltd Company which went into Liquidation over 10 years ago. Plus even if the owner of the land was still in existence to do anything would involve a solicitor at £200 pound an hour and who is going to pay for that.
                I would continue to try and find out who the owner is, would an EPC certificate show the name and address of the person who paid for it,

                  Your dispute is with tenants. Follow CaB neighbours dispute advice. Do you know which estate agent sold place (advert might still be online) to ask?

                  Contact council also. In VERY extreme cases police/council can close down rentals...

                  Someone will know. Keep asking

                    I had a problem with a tenant and looked up the land reg title only to find the LL's address was the property. It had a mtg on it and in desperation I contacted the mtg provider but they didn't want to know, even though I strongly confirmed that they were letting the property on a residential mtg.

                    Another time, somebody was scam letting a property advertised with a local EA. I managed to contact the owner via facebook by asking if anyone knew the owner. The owner contacted me and they were able to sort out the scammer.

                      Exactly. Write formally to the tenants. If they dont stop get a solicitor to send them a letter.

                        What are the problems, if it is a private road, you could get the car towed away if it is blocking access to your property, alternatively you could get a tracing company to locate the LL, or formally get a solicitor to write to them.

                          Not the case i am afraid, it was in the past but there has been a legislation change since a number of private clamping firms '' made hay '' and caused a few issues. As the owner of the land an accredited firm would need to be employed to issue fines, but towing and clamping etc can only be done via councils and the Police, DVLA etc.

                            Problem is once there is a neighbourhood dispute - if may affect you (and neighbours)if anyone in the future should wish to sell .... there is a question on the T6 asking if there have been any disputes . so be aware of this -

                            If they are parking where they shound not be parking - does the restrictive covenant still stand ?
                            Perhaps write to the landlord using the address itself and send it recordred deliver- markeed ;private and confidential

                            Tenants have an obligation to forward on mail -

                              The covenants are on the owner of the property..... i.e the landlord, not the tenant, so its the landlord that would be breaching it as it is they who signed the lease to agree to them, all the tenant signed was the AST which i am sure would not have anything to do with the original lease on the property. I think any legal action would need to be taken by the other neighbours if there is no active management company which i gather from the above there is not. I see a long process here and as you know it will be expensive, any private land can be a real pain when people like these tenants move in, the rules that govern ' normal ' people do not apply to those who do not care, i have lots of experience of this and only legal action will sort it i am afraid ........ but even then do not expect miracles.

                                Nothing happened for my review hearing, the solicitor said he had never had a call from the courts but he and I had to be available 'just in case'. The attended hearing was about 10 weeks later. Defendant didn't turn up, PO awarded together with costs. Judge wouldn't allow escalating to HCEO.

                                We're careful when using the sink what goes down. We've called out people for things in the past and they've told us that it wasn't installed or whatever properly to start with. It seems we're suffering the consequences of shoddy workmanship and doing things on the cheap....

                                My kitchen sink has been blocked for almost 3 weeks.

                                The landlord/agent has been dragging his feet getting a plumber out and when someone did come, they confirmed my suspicions that it's something more just needing to pour some unblocker down (this is why I haven't called someone out myself...

                                I have tried to unblock it with a plunger and unblocker but it didn't work. A few months ago we called out a plumber who unblocked until it happened again almost 3 weeks ago.

                                That's why I'm convinced there's a problem with the whole system.

                                I'd rather it be officially attended...

                                Hi,

                                I'm renting a residential property (for the first time) and i would like a Word document of a tenancy agreement/contract, that i could edit with specific details. Some information to help understand the tenancy:

                                Property is in England.
                                Tenancy is for a sole tenant...

                                On the coast...... it has to be a point in front for Holiday Let, i do not see the demand for good UK holiday lets to go down much so this would be my choice if the location is right...... and it is that last point which really makes the thing work or not.
