    L abroad- notify Council etc. of address for service?

    The reason one of my houses has got into such a state, is for a number of reasons, the agent hasn't communicated with me (useless), the tenant has been to the council, the council is forcing me to do works and has actually already done some, because they wrote to my old address.

    What i need to know is how do i give them my new address?

    So that anyone in the UK, police, council anyone, when they look me up, they find the proper address instead of some house i lived at a long time ago?

    I there some website or government body i should speak to?

    Surely your LA was able to forward communications on to you. You must give an E & W address if you are an absent LL. Accountant? Relative?
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

      query whether the agents received the notices and failed to send them on - if so you may have a claim against them
      PAUL GIBBS, solicitor, Jacobs & Reeves. My comments on this forum are correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. No responsibility or liability is accepted by reason of reliance upon such comments. This disclaimer would not apply to direct clients of Jacobs & Reeves where there is a valid retainer in place and I would be happy to confirm any advice if formally instructed. . Jacobs & Reeves now offer a fixed fee possession service.

        Thank you.
        My question is though, for the future, how do i change the address?

        If the council/police/tax office etc need to contact me?

          I would contact the Land Registry and update your correspondance details with them so that anyone doing a Land Registry search on the property will have your correct details.

                Try and change suppliers.
                The outgoing supplier will do everything that they can to prevent this (the automated routes won't work), but they'll have to do it eventually.

                My tenant was evicted back in April of this year after a lengthy period.
                Besides this trauma, the problems continue.

                My new agent has emptied the letterbox and found a number of concerning items. One is the matter of a court summons for unpaid council tax. I have since taken over...

                It sounds like it. But as above ask for a breakdown of fees first and take it from there.

                There is a Solicitors Regulation Authority. It has a Code of Conduct....

                Assuming that you are a tenant (there's a good checker on the Shelter website - which might be useful to point your landlord at)..

                There are a number of ways a tenancy can be brought to an end, but for a landlord to end the tenancy, there are only two options (other than by agreement with...

                Hi there,

                I moved into a property 2-3 months ago which was subletted to me by a girl named on the main tenancy contract of the property. I handed over a deposit (which is currently unprotected) and have paid rent on time. She today decided to give me notice to leave, giving me only 2 weeks...

                We had a very high solicitors charge but my partner noticed in their terms & conditions that they had put that if their charges were going to go over £5000 they would contact us first, which they had not done, so the bill was reduced to £5000 plus Vat at £1000.
                And I believe that there...

                We all understand that they are not known for their charitable nature...... but 9k !!!! As has been said, ask for a detailed breakdown of exactly how they have spent a weeks worth of time (avrg 48hr week) to deal with this simple (non contested) S21....... Wow

                Appreciate the clarification, I did do a lot of digging around after you first mentioned exclusive occupation into the laws regarding this so I definitely understand your point there now. And as far as I can tell from that, my being here should constitute the requirements of a (sub)tenancy.
