Failure to respond to a Section 13 or Section 42 Notice, or doing anything that might admit the validity of the claim, could be very costly.
We act on behalf of landlords, intermediate landlords with head leases and management companies. If you have received a Section 13 Notice or Section 42 Notice, then failure to act could be very costly i.e. you may be bound to accept the premium imposed by the tenant.
Most if not all the costs of this claim will be met by the tenant, but negotiation and tribunal work are not covered. If you have received a notice of claim, it’s important you do not do anything that may admit the validity of the claim until it has been investigated.
You are entitled to have a valuation carried out so you can respond to the tenant’s notice of claim. We can offer expert guidance and connect you with a suitable valuer/surveyor.
