Demands for rent and service charge: Don’t forget the landlord’s name and address!

When it comes to issuing demands for rent and service charge to tenants of residential property, there are a number of strict statutory requirements that must be met in order for demands to be valid. One such requirement that can be overlooked is that the demand itself must contain the name and address of the landlord (section 47 Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 (LTA 1987)). If the landlord’s address is not in England and Wales, an address in England and Wales at which the tenant may serve notices (including notices in proceedings) on the landlord should be included.
