  • In a notice to collectively enfranchise under section 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993, what information needs to be given in relation to the extent of the property to be acquired (eg roof space and gardens) and the rights to be granted?
  • The content of the notice

Section 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (LRHUDA 1993) is concerned with the giving of notice by qualifying tenants of a claim to exercise the right to collective enfranchisement in respect of flats. The initial notice triggers the statutory procedures for acquiring the freehold and from the date it is served on the landlord the participating tenants are jointly and individually liable for the landlord’s costs. An incomplete notice can be rejected as invalid. It is possible for an invalid notice to be replaced with a corrected notice, though that will involve additional time and expense.
