Reply To: ‘Housing Division’ named as Landlord…

MPS may be an entity owned by the charity/NFP or one if its trustees/directors, but unless MPS is a charity/NFP themselves they do not benefit from the charitable/NFP status of their parent.

Alternatively, they may be an agent for the charity/NFP where the tenants’ landlord is actually the NFP.

Either way, I don’t see how MPS can be ‘fully part of the charity’ – unless they can fully describe the legal relationship between the MPS and the charity/NFP and why they trade under that name.

I note that Millbrook Property Services Ltd was dissolved by voluntary strike off in 2014

My best guess is that they have an insufficiently developed understanding of HB and would benefit from some external advice on how to appropriately structure their operation.
