    ou can always put your offer in to the agent concerned - it is his job to get the best deal he can for his client (the landlord) so the landlord should receive it.

    P.P.
    Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

        You could try the Land Registry website - for a couple of quid you can get details of ownership of the property, which may well be what you need... but it won't necessarily simply yield the name and contact details of the landlord.

          Yes, but fee is £3. If using LR Direct, make sure that you look at correct register (e.g. if it's a leasehold property, whether house or flat, the prospective L is the owner of the 'lowest' of the existing leases/underleases).

          1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
          2. Telephone advice: see http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=34638.
          3. For paid advice about conveyancing/leaseholds/L&T, contact me* and become a private client.
