section 20 consultation

Welcome to SLC Solicitors

Property Management Legal Services Firm of the Year 2012-13

SLC Solicitors provide a service specifically designed for those who require Section 20 Consultation guidance and we specialise in the handling of such cases.

Section 20 of the Landlord and Tenant act 1985 (as amended by s151 of Commonhold & Landowners Reform Act 2002) provides that tenants paying variable service charges must be consulted before a landlord carries out works above a certain value or enters into a long-term agreement for the provision of services.

These provisions can be fraught with difficulties but at SLC we can assist with all aspects of the process.

We have attempted to show in our flowchart the stages when consulting with tenants for major works without public notice requirements as this is probably the most common situation in practice; i.e. where major works which will cost each tenant more than £250 are proposed.
