Service of Enforcement Notice: owner’s address could be from Land Register

In the High Court case of London Borough of Newham v Miah & Anor [2016] it was ruled that if a local authority is not provided with a current address by the owner of property, it is entitled to use the proprietor’s address on the Land Registry’s Land Register, for the land, as the proper address to serve an enforcement notice.

Thus Mr Miah was properly served with the enforcement notice by the Council.
