    What do you call a person receiving an invoice

    Can someone please tell me the correct name for a person who receives an invoice ie for ground rent.

    Is it invoicee or invoicsee or is there another terms for this?

    Your help appreciated.

    I think it is 'the invoiced'.

    P.P.

      Brilliant! P.Pilcher thank you very much!

      Now I've seen that on the Screen I know that you are absolutely Right! you would not believe just how much I've been racking my brains over this and none of my colleagues knew the answer either.

      Well done!

      Thank you again.

        Well - pleased to be of service - but, please check back in case somebody more qualified than me comes up with a better answer, after all I was a scientist at school and failed 'O' level english language. I got it in the end though, but the one 'O' level I never bothered to try and get when I failed it the first time was english literature! I did make University in the end, but only got degrees in easy things like electronics, physics and electrical materials science!

        P.P.

          I think the answer is "customer" or "purchaser".

            Not so. A person in receipt of a ground rent demand is hardly a customer or purchaser. Pilcher's "invoiced" is OK, but I think "invoicee" is more usual.
            Disclaimer: What I say is either right or wrong. It may be advisable to check what I say with a solicitor. If he says I am right then I am right, unless he is wrong in which case I am wrong; but if he says I am wrong then I am wrong, unless he is wrong in which case I am right

              I have an alternative answer, especially with regard to ground rent demands. The ground rent is addressed to the "lessee" or "leaseholder".

                If you owe money to someone, you are a debtor - if someone owes you money, you are a creditor.

                In court, you that are owed money to are called a Claimant, and them as owe money to you are called defendants.

                  Can be more complicated as you can get Part 20 claimants who are defendants and Part 20 defendants who are also claimants!

                    I am not suggesting it is the landlord's fault. I am just saying that, in some cases, if a tenant feels secure he is more likely to take care of a place....

                    Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

                    House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant

                    That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

                    Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.

                    We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

                    The requirement comes from the tenancy terms. There are various reasons why a contract term may be void or unenforceable. They include: illegal; impossible; contrary to public policy; statute forbids them to be imposed; unfair. A requirement to keep a dwelling clean and leave it it clean is none of...

                    I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

                    Lawcruncher,

                    Why does a tenant need to leave the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness if the property wasn't in a reasonable state of cleanliness at the start of the tenancy? Where does the requirement come from? The deposit protection schemes don't appear to take that approach...
