What should the notice of intention to carry out major works contain?

If you receive a notice which is usually called a “section 20 notice” to do works, it should contain certain information.  The notice should  describe in general terms the works proposed, or specify a (reasonable) place and hours at which a description may be inspected by the leaseholder.

The notice should also explain the reasons for the proposed works and invite you as  a leaseholder to give your opinions (observations) in writing within 30 days. Where applicable it should also inform leaseholders of their right to give the name (nominate) of a contractor  to be contacted by the landlord to give an estimated costing  for the works.  The landlord must have regard to any observation received by the due date and seek estimates from nominated contractors where applicable.
