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

A notice of intention must be sent to each leaseholder and the secretary of the recognised tenants association (RTA), if there is one. The notice must describe in general terms the works proposed, or specify a (reasonable) place and hours at which a description may be inspected.

The notice should also give the reasons why it is necessary to carry out the proposed works and invite observations in writing within 30 days. Where applicable it should also inform leaseholders of their right to nominate a contractor. The landlord must have regard to any observation received by the due date and seek estimates from nominated contractors where applicable.
