Section 25

Section 25

Postby convoy2 » Fri Aug 11, 2017 7:08 am

Hi
A lease is held, Party A is the Landlord and B is the Lease Holder, there is a 3rd party C who is registered on the title of the property but is not named on the lease.
On serving a Section 25 notice to B does both A and C need to be named on the notice?

Thanks

Section 25 of which statute? Landlord and Tenant Act 1954?

In what way is C named on the registered title? How did this happen?

If the 1954 Act, the notice should be served on the Tenant, who may no longer be the person named in the lease.

The scenario reveals a question which itself requires to be answered before the OP's question can be answered. There may easily be an answer, but . .

How is the landlord not the registered owner?

It is of course possible that neither of the parties named in the lease are now the landlord or the tenant.

Such a notice should be served by the current landlord on the current tenant.
