Property Disputes analysis: The decision establishes the requirements of service of notices where someone relies on section 18 of the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1994 (LP(MP)A 1994) to effect service of a notice relating to land where the intended recipient has died. The court ruled that service under LP(MP)A 1994, s 18 is achieved provided that the copy of the notice sent to the Public Trustee is served before the expiry of the original notice served on the personal representatives of the deceased.
