Apparently, the exchange took place on February 13th but still, the name I received from the Land Registry was wrong because I know my ex landlords name.
The Land Registry can tell you when the registration took place of the new name, even if it is wrong. There are exceptions, but the landlord may have put it into his own company name. Do you have a copy of the freehold title? You can see the name of the registered proprietor and in front of the name in brackets, is the registration date.
No, I downloaded the basic doc - name & address etc but it seems to have disappeared from my computer but I have the name of the supposed new owner.
I have already ASKED my old landlord but wouldn't tell me the new ones name, just referred me to the property management people who are now dealing with the house. Therefore, I cannot contact the new landlord as nobody will give me his name!!! I came onto this website in the hope that somebody could actually help me find this out but obviously you can't.
I do not pay ground rent. The registered owners name I received seemed to be up to date when I enquired. My problem is not KNOWING who is right - the Land Registry or the bloke who seems to know because he works for the maintenence side of things! If you cannot help me find out who owns this property, then take my eleven quid but please just be up front about it. Sorry but I'm going nuts here because I've heard that it's possible that the new landlord, according to the worker, is a rogue landlord.
Ok, I'm sorry if I'm coming across a tad hostile but I want to tear my hair out right now! This seems to me to be a weird situation. Apparently this 'phantom' landlord owns many, many properties. He has one estate agent dealing with lettings & problems, then they tell another estate agent/ whatever to do the maintenance - I don't quite get it but that's how it is. Someone needs something doing to their property, they go to one, then they tell the other what to do!!
Yes I'm a tenant of over nine years in this property but my rent goes out automatically each week - I'm a pensioner & receive LHA. I think I will phone my old landlord & DEMAND the name of the new one - I think I deserve to know that for my peace of mind. Thank you for your help Claire - I suppose I just wanted someone to do it for me.
