Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Yes can you upload it?
With the excuse ...
"As the property is owned by “XXX”, it is their (i.e. their representatives) responsibility to notify all Utility companies. At the point of move in/out we should have been notified of company details and a forwarding address."
Which we did ... to the last utility on file ... but tenant had changed utility companies! Even when BG entered the property, we had no idea who had entered
What a company needs to do is write to the occupier and warn them of arrears and their intention to apply for a warrant.
If there is no response then the company can apply to the Court.
The Magistrates tend to agree these on mass as there are so many
Once there is a warrant they can force entry
The warrant looks ok
However if the tenants caused arrears and they have moved you can contact the company and they will normally come back and reconnect
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
