Not a lawyer

First things first.  

You need to have in your possession any paperwork that gives control of the premises to Templetons as the trustees in the matter.

You must have a copy of your current lease agreement.

You must insure that your rent is paid to date.

It would be good if you can get a copy of the, “Receiving Order” as a creditor in the receivership. Request a copy from the trustees, because you have a vested interest in the matter, you should have been provided with a copy.

You have a valid lease agreement ….Assured Short Term.  The property is vested in the hands of the trustees and they will continue with your contract as it stands and provide you with all of the required notices in accordance with the requirements of the laws governing tenancies.


Hi Dawn

Essentially, the landlord remains your landlord with respect to all the obligations in the tenancy agreement. The only difference is that you pay your rent to the receiver. As far as I know you don’t become a creditor of the landlord, as suggested above. There is a good, useful article on the subject in more detail here.
