If you are a tenant in England & Wales and the Landlord has served a Section 25 Notice to terminate your lease, it is very important that you take the advice from a Solicitor and a Chartered Surveyor as soon as possible. If terms for a new lease are not negotiated prior to the termination date, then a Tenant may lose their security of tenure and the right to renew the lease. A lease renewal is an important issue for a Tenant as it may be possible to vary the terms of the existing lease. Alternatively, a tenant may not have heard from the Landlord and might wish to agree to a lease renewal. In this case, a Section 26 notice can be served on the Landlord (ideally from your Solicitor), which will bring the lease to an end and requesting a new lease.
