This Letter from New Landlord can be used when a tenanted property is bought and the new owner becomes Landlord to the existing Tenant.
It serves as a covering letter for the Rent Authority Letter and also confirms the new owner’s name, address and bank details. A standing order form can be enclosed if rent is to be paid by standing order.
With residential tenants it is particularly important to provide details of the Landlord’s address for service. Under section 48 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987, rent is not treated as lawfully due from a residential tenant unless the Landlord has provided a name and address at which notices must be served.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
This Letter from New Landlord is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
