  • Postal/forwarding Addresses

    This is NOT an advertisement!
    Besides Royal Mail's PO Boxes, there is apparently a new scheme from UPS via local frachisees.
    One can rent a mailbox address - minimum 3 mths. - in over 100 UK locations (not just home town as per PO Box), with forwarding facilities and 24hr collection too. It costs less than £1 per day.
    I have received a mailshot about it ("Mail Boxes Etc.") For further info, contact 0800-623123.

    Hi jeffrey;

    Do you think such a mailbox is suitable for listing as an address for service re: Section 48 L&T 1987?
    All posts in good faith, but do not rely on them

      Yes. That section just requires a service address, which can be anywhere in England & Wales. L has to be confident, of course, that post which arrives there will be physically received by him/her.

      Contrast s.38(1) of LTA 1985. Mailbox is not sufficient for purposes of that Act (eg for s.3 Notice).

        Hi Jeffrey, I haven't been able to find s38 in the LTA 1985, when you say 'Mailbox' are you referring to a PO Box? I have used a PO Box address for several years and successfully removed two tenants via S21s using this as my address.

          I'm surprised that you are even asking, it's obviously some kind of scam.

        • Burglary Damage - Who Pays?
          Pb21
          Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

          Following on from my last post, had the tenant not informed the police and landlord at the time, they would have failed in their duty. I therefore would expect the tenant to foot the bill at the end of the tenancy or sooner.

          Criminal damage not connected with the tenant occurred during the tenancy and was reported as such at the time. It is not the case that the tenant caused or was responsible for loss of value beyond wear and tear.

          I'm just stating my view which appears to be backed up from sources other...

          If the tenancy ended and the lock was broken, it would be a loss in value beyond fair wear and tear and I'd expect the tenant to compensate the landlord for it.
          Same as any other damage.

          What's different about it during the tenancy?

          Yes, they have a duty of care but not the same responsibilities as a lease/freeholder.

          If I was the tenant, I'd refuse to pay. This is assuming I hadn't been grossly negligent and had reported the damage at the earliest opportunity to both the police and the landlord. I would expect a TDS...
