Freeholders full name and address?

Freeholders full name and address?

I understand that it is a requirement that the managing agent for the freeholder must state the name and address of the freeholder on all demands for payment that they send the leaseholders.
Does the following constitute a full name and address

SMITH, PO BOX NP 12** ROCHFORD ESSEX SS5 9**.
I beleive this is insufficient.
I welcome any advice.

I don't know whether the information you have given is sufficient .

However, the Royal Mail will give you the details of the holder of any Post Office Box Number (unless it's sensitive such as a women's refuge). You don't have to explain why you want it or give your name.

I have done this and it's very straightforward.

This is from the Royal Mail website:

'Can you tell me the address sitting behind a PO Box®?'

'Yes. Please call us on 08457 950 950. Lines are open 8.00am until 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. However, please be aware if this is a sensitive address we may not be able to release the information.'

if thats true that is ridiculous... most people have po boxes for privacy.

re whether the address is sufficient i suggest you ask the leasehold advisory service. i think they will say that po box numbers are not sufficient.

Hi

Try and see if your insurance can cover repair they will then chase the other owner for the costs.

This is the link to the T&C's for PO boxes http://www.royalmail.com/sites/default/files/PO-Box-Application-Form-with-Terms-and-Conditions-Jun-2014-Web.pdf

page 2: "Please note we will disclose your full street address
to enquirers. Do not use this service if you do not want your address to be revealed."
