Q&As

A tenant served a notice under section 42 of LRHUDA 1993 and the landlord missed the deadline for service of the section 45 counter-notice. The landlord carried out a valuation to see whether the premium stated in the s 42 notice matches the open market value, which it does. However, the tenant is unwilling to pay the valuation costs on the basis that it was irrelevant, because the deadline to serve the counter-notice had passed. Under LRHUDA 1993, s 60 the tenant is liable for reasonable costs incidental to any investigation into the tenant's right to a new lease, any valuation or the grant of the new lease. Can the landlord recover the valuation costs in these circumstances?
