    Care of Address and Mystery Address

    Hi,

    My landlord has provided me with a Care Of address and also an address to which legal notices can be sent. I have searched for the address for serving notices (it's a business). The company appears to exist however the addresses do not correspond. Where should I send correspondence to??

    Do you mean the company does not occupy the address given?

      It's very often the case that a limited company's everyday business address is different to their registered address (often their accountant's address). I would send to the address given for serving notices if that is what is stated. Follow up with an email asking for acknowledgment of receipt if you want to be sure it has been received.

        address

        This is in reply to Poppy -

        When I have googled the name of the company - a Residential Letting Agency the address is different to the one I have been provided with. They may well have moved address and I have not been informed of this. Should I just telephone the company to confirm details??

              Care of and Mystery address

              I have contacted the company listed on my AST as the address to send all legal notices. They confirmed that they knew nothing of this arrangement and have asked to see a copy of the agreement that has their details on. So where do I go from here - should I just send notices by recorded delivery to LL's care of address???

                Send Notices to:
                a. last known service address provided by L under s.48 of LTA 1987; and
                b. [if L is a limited company] the registered office address.

                That way, L is fixed with Notice as long as you can prove service at the addresses. Its non-presence at one address or both addresses (or its unawareness that Notices arrived there) will be irrelevant.

                  Thanks for the replies. It appears that if the tenants become wise to their s21 situation it will have to be a section 8 which by the looks of it will require specialist help of some variety. All this for helping a dedperate 'friend'.

                  Hi, asking this for a friend (no, seriously, I am).
                  Beginning of the year they agreed to rent their property to somone they considered almost family. As a favour they charged no bond, let them have the first 7 weeks rent free and have discounted their rent every month ever since due to their financial...

                  I hope you're not as abrasive in person as you appear to be on this forum. Nearly 40,000 deaths but that doesn't matter as long as you can get a discount.

                  I rent right now and want to maintain a rolling deal or 6 month tops but with lower rent circa 30% off. What the best way to go about this? I'm not looking for a moral/ethics conversation just from experience of those on either end of that kind of negoation what can work. I am the perfect tenant who...

                  Thanks for the replies. So if the landlord wants to sell the house and the tenants have got wise to GSC situation thus invalidating s21 and stay within the amount of arrears agreed upon the tenancy agrement before eviction occurs how would they go about getting them out without resorting to a third...

                  Hi

                  I noticed a new law means landlords need to arrange an EICR for new tenancies after July 2020 or before April 2021.

                  Please can I get some advice on this? I started a tenancy in May 2020 - this is due to expire in November 2020. However it is likely the tenancy will be renewed...

                  Mmm,

                  Joshy you seem very keen to treat your landlord and housing as a commodity. This is one approach but don't be surprised if your landlord adopts the same approach. I would far prefer to have a professional business relationship based upon mutual respect , I don't instantly increase...
