    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.

        • Algae and Moss on Steps
          SGB100
          Our tenant occupies on an AST 6 month term, the flat is accessible only from rear concrete steps (they only serve their flat these steps do not provide access for other areas) and on inspection we found the steps to be covered in moss and algae whose responsibility is it to clean this?

          This should really be covered by a clause in your tenancy agreement. If it isn't then draft an addendum now for use next time....

          Hi,
          looking for some practical advice here, first post.I shall try to hit the main points and be brief.
          I have been renting my house to a couple whilst I have been out of the UK with a private rental contract, visiting the house once a year. They have been renting for 10 years , on a one...

          As JPK says, let them leave before pressing some of the these issues. If you haven't served a proper s21 notice then they could make your life very difficult and make you wait before giving up possession....

          Good Day All,
          I am a new landlord and as such decided to not undertake the task of all the nuances of letting so I hired a letting agency.

          Things went smoothly until I wanted the tenant to leave. The date the tenant was to leave was the 13th of January. To date, he still has not left...

          Serve notice yourself and then assuming you instructed the Agent to serve notice on the tenant and they failed to do so, cancel the contract with them and report their incompetence to whichever redress scheme they are part of....

        • Take agent or inventory company to court?
          Spencerjdb
          Summary:
          Who is responsible for keys if they break 3hrs into tenancy by bending (poor metal) and later proven the 2nd copy of key I had was stiff (and lock has a "knack" and a "fraction") and was later given agency copy of keys which were better than my "stiff keys".

          So with the 2 hour clean you'll be taking court action over a dirty side of a bed and a key? Last time I had a key cut it was less than a fiver and it sounds like a 3 minute cleaning job to do down the side of the bed. It really does feel like a massive over reaction. Taking this into consideration...

        • Notice period when subletting
          peacelily
          A bit of background to explain the situation- I am currently subletting a room from a tenant of a flat who is renting from a landlord.

          I have now given my notice to move out.

          Our original agreement (only by email, nothing signed or in writing) stated that the tenant would...

          I want to take court action if I have to pay for a cleaner, because those responsible for the property will not.
          I want to take court action as the agency I'm sure will take it from my deposit if I do not pay for a 2nd key to be cut.

          I'm not a slave, nor a cleaner, nor do I have any...
