The subject company have been junk-mailing our share-of-freehold residential building of flats in London for a couple of years now, I must have had a dozen or so identical letters from them. When they write they send an expensively produced letter to each of the flat owners using their full names plus the freehold company name and street address, but no flat numbers. The letter begins 'Dear [first name], Re: [name of our share-of-freehold company], We are writing to you as we are a commerical and residential property investment company and are looking for new and creative ways to expand our portfolio. We believe that you are a privately owned company and have a property asset base. You may be considering a retirement sale or possibly a part disposal in order to raise capital. [Etc etc]. It goes on to talk of acquiring property assets, enquiries being strictly private and confidential, exchange of contracts within 14 days and so on. Signed off by 'Mark Randolph Dyer, Managing Director' and the address given is at The Bridge, Lombard Wharf, SW11 3GP. The Company Reg# given is 11172033.

There is no particular reason why our 'little old building' might be being targeted by them and I'm curious why they are going to so much expense. I'm the only resident director/ flat-owner so none of their post (being intentionally vague but this must number 50-100 letters to date) will have received a reply. Is there anyone else receiving these who has figured out what this company is up to? To clarify I'm not concerned as such re: our building just the whole thing looks dodgy and I'm curious what they do that justifies so much wasted expense.

You are getting marketing letters sent to the shareholders of the company because whoever is sending them thinks you are a property development company and not a residential company.
