Landlords Alliance – Emergency Euro Elections Statement21:09 PM, 21st May 2019
About A day ago 43
I represent my sister who lives overseas but rents out a property in the UK. I read that an overseas address is not valid in respect to any financial matter between landlord and tenant as far as the Court is concerned. I am named on the Tenancy Agreement as the Representative.
I have sent, as her representative, two rent arrears letters to her tenants using my (UK) address, but not adding her USA address (based on the above), and am about to send a third.
I have read in the last couple of days that a rent arrears letter without the Landlord’s address appearing on it will not be allowed by the Court if I used it in as evidence for a Section 8.
Are my first two letters invalid and should my sister’s overseas address be added on all correspondence along with my address?
