    N5B England

    Seeking possession of a flat using N5B England form. Sent to relevant court with all relevant attachments and cheque. I understand that the guidance for filling out this form has been withdrawn. Presumably it stated on the guidance to send everything in triplicate ( doesn’t mention this on form itself). I only sent 1 copy which was duly returned with a request for 3 copies.

    I act as agent for my step daughter who owns the flat. The flat and me are London based. My step daughter lives in Lincoln. Despite putting my London address for correspondence on page 6 of N5B the Court returned the papers to the Lincoln address. How can I ensure that all future correspondence is sent to me?

    Has anyone got a copy of the withdrawn guidance so I can double check everything before sending everything again in triplicate?

    I would call and speak to court staff to change correspondence address then follow it up with an email to confirm.

    """"I act as agent for my step daughter who owns the flat.""""
    Which letting agent redress scheme are you registered with?

    Are you legally qualified to represent step-daughter in court? If not you can't (may not, legally unable to represent her..)

    Only the Landlord or a Solicitor can sign the N5b    (  NOT,  an Agent. )   Courts are quite pernickety about details matching up,  names on AST, with Sec 21's with N5b's   - a discrepancy is all it takes for case to be dismissed.

    https://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedu...orms/forms says the guidance was form N5C. If you google that the first link is https://wbus.westlaw.co.uk/forms/pdf/cpf09467.pdf. This guidance is quite clear that you can not sign the forms for your daughter.

    If you also google N5B form guidance there is plenty of advice.
