“Section 20” Advice/Works

Where Section 20 of The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 applies, the Landlord must consult the Leaseholders of a specific property prior to any major works being carried out to a building which are more than a certain value.

A notice served under Section 20 initiates a specific process which must be followed. Failure to do so could result in the landlord not being able to recover the cost of the work from the tenants.

Here at Lc Building Consultants we can help guide you through the process and timescales involved to ensure that the work is completed following a full consultation process and cost recovery will not be challenged under the legislation.
