  • How do i find a Landlords address?

    I have nuisance neighbours living next door, i recently discovered that they are renting the property, but despite my efforts to find an address for the owner/landlord i have been unsuccessful, i have repeatedly asked the tenants to contact their landlord regarding the garden fence they kindly removed and burnt on their bonfire last year without permission or replacement. When i asked them recently for the landlords contact details so i could speak directly to him/her they reacted angrily. I have paid £3 for the land registry details on the property but i only got a name of the owner, the address was the same as the property, has anyone got advice on how to find the landlords details it would be very much appreciated?

    If L shows this property as his address, that's where you would have to serve any Notices on him.

      This may or may not apply, but if it is a licensable HMO, the local council keeps names and addresses of all landlords. These are available for public inspection.

        try 192.com, the postman (yup, ask him nicely), send the man a letter to his next door address, try ALL the estate & letting agents locally... the Police, the council, neighbours, & anything else you can think of...

        (I take it you are not in Scotland: There (sensible country) all Landlords must be registered, public web-site, you can look 'em up -)

        Cheers!

          But most of the people you mention (apart from the neighbours perhaps) would not be obliged to reveal the address to you even if they knew it, or might actively refuse to, on grounds on confidentiality.

            The postman will know - buy him a beer.

              I would write him a letter addressing the issues to the address of the property, I would assume he must be redirecting his mail and it will get to him, then kindly ask the postman about the if there is a redirect on the address for the landlord.

                Really, it's just the owner whose address you need- the fact that the owner is L, sub-letting, is irrelevant.

                Of course, T does have rights to obtain L's address [s.1 of LTA 1985] but that's no good here!

                  Sorry to hijack this thread, but I think its relevant. I have my LL's PO Box number. Is this sufficient to serve notices on, or do I need his home address?

                      Thanks, I'm looking at sending in my N208 this week. Is it sufficient for the court to serve this notice to a PO Box? Or do they need to have the home address?

                        As I don't handle litigation, I don't know what the Civil Procedure Rules state about addresses for service: sorry.

                            We have had mice for a while now. There's only one or two that we see (we're not overrun) but still, they've left urine stains in our cupboard and behind the skirting it's ridiculously filthy and soiled.

                            Great, but you've entirely missed the point I was making.

                            If someone walked across my front garden and allowed their dog to take a massive dump I'd have more than reasonable grounds to hold them responsible for cleaning it up.

                            But if they refused or claimed that it wasn't down...

                            Notice to quit is pretty well defined, "surrender" is not, so while that list looks complete, it is in fact not.

                            For a tenant to surrender a tenancy, there should be an offer of surrender and the landlord has to accept that offer.

                            If s21 notice is served and a tenant...

                            There's only (legally) one tenant in a joint tenancy ("who" is made up of the five occupants all of whom are liable for all of the obligations of the tenant), so yes, the badly maintaining students will be subsidised by the better behaved students.

                            Most head leases for flats forbid drying within the grounds but outside the flat, so requiring drying outside the property means an extended dry in the laundrette, so you if you want to impose such a rule, you should probably ban washing machines as well.

                            The Act clearly states what a s.21 notice does, which is nothing apart from allowing the landlord to go to court.



                            I have just done so.

                            If a s.21 does nothing then the tenant may only end the tenancy by surrender or notice to quit. Both of which are very well documented...
