The following Property guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Following receipt of a section 13 notice (an 'initial notice'), the landlord should ensure that the tenants exercising their right to acquire the freehold have the ability to do so. Section 20(1) of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (LRHUDA 1993) gives the landlord the power to require the nominee purchaser to deduce title to each lease held by a participating qualifying tenant. The landlord may make such a request within 21 days of the date on which the initial notice is given (the 'relevant date').
The nominee purchaser must deduce title within 21 days of the date of the landlord's request. This period cannot be extended. There is no prescribed form of notice for reque
