    Send the notice via registered mail. It may be being diverted so you will at least have proof that you sent it in the worst case scenario of it going to court.

    My landlord insurance policy definitely doesn't cover the building if it's untenanted for such a long period. I'd be livid!

    But it is tenanted isn't it? Is he still paying rent etc? even though he had left it empty I would have thought it would still be classed as tenanted. I dunno.

    Thats what i thought? If the guy is paying rent and the lease is in his name, i cant see how it would affect your insurance?

    As for the garden, that i get. I live in the tropics so during the wet, it looks like a jungle after a few weeks let alone 5 months!

    It's tenanted but it is unoccupied. That can wreak havoc on insurance policies.

    At best the OP would have to pay an additional excess if she had to make a claim. At worst she won't be covered.

    But how is it the OP's fault? How are they to know? Thats not fair!

    That sucks and is a stupid rule. You learn something new everyday.
