    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.

                                Don't do anything, when it due to end either increase rent or serve notice.

                                We have a new tenant (has only been in the property a month) who applied as a single person and the contract is in their name only. We have now found out they plan to have their partner move in. please can anyone advise what is best for us to do? Does it need to be a whole new contract or can...

                                Is it possible that even though I have a county court warrant that the government will not lift the ban on evictions for S21 PO after the lockdown is over ?...

                                What county court bailiffs do if they come to evict and the tenants say they are not feeling well?...

                                I didn't, but since the tenant hasn't engaged at any stage, including attending hearings, complying with orders, responding to texts, emails and letters, I think it's a good claim. He wouldn't even respond to requests to allow access to the Gassafe plumber for safety checks. The guidance says that...

                                I'm glad you mentioned this, I noticed some of the extremely cheap houses seem to offer the best yield, but I thought to myself "I would not want to live in that area". I like the idea of going slightly above average to try and avoid areas that...

                                First post here. I have been reading for a while but thought I'd make a post. I am looking to get into property investing as I sold my business a while ago and have a considerable sum to invest. My main objectives for investing are long term inflation protection and a couple...

                                I have rung up about a few houses for sale that have tenants in place. Also, I have checked recent sold prices of houses that appear to need minimal work doing to make them ready to rent, though admittedly you can only see so much from pictures...

                                Also, I'm completing the MCOL application now for submission tomorrow, before the tenant has even left because, a) I've no idea where he'll disappear to and b) I've next to zero chance of recovering any money.
