Duty to Provide Name and Address of Landlord (England)

section 48 notice same if new buyer of property

22 Sep 2016 | 4 comments

hi is the section 48 notice informing of new landlord details exactly the same if a new purchaser of the property just bought the property or is any added detail needed to be conveyed to tenant please?

    Same form is suitable for all circumstances including a recent purchase.

    thank you – is there any need to assign the previous owner/landlords tenancy agreement over to the new owner landlord or does the new owner have the right to issue possession proceedings in his name based on proof of ownership

    • guildy

      No, the section 48 effectively takes care of it. The tenant remains protected (and remains a tenant) as the statue moves the tenancy to the new owner. The section 48 is required to provide details of that new landlord.

    Great – thank you for the reassuring information!
