When a seller of a leasehold flat replies to a purchaser’s enquiry and uses the Leasehold Property Enquiries Form LPE1 (LPE1), should it disclose proposals to replace the cladding?

Question 4.8 of LPE1 asks if “within the next two years are any Section 20 works proposed to the Property”, and, if so, to provide details of the works and the contribution anticipated from the leaseholder.

‘Section 20’ refers to a consultation process that the law requires a landlord to conduct if planned works (‘major works’) will cost any leaseholder in the building more than £250.

It follows that any intended cladding works should be disclosed in answer to question 4.8.
