Notices to pay

Landlord and Tenant (Notice of Rent) (England) Regulations 2004 (SI 2004/3096)
Landlord and Tenant (Notice of Rent)(Wales) Regulations 2005 (SI 1355; W 103)

Section 166 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 introduced a requirement for landlords of long leases (as defined in the Act, generally over 21 years) to send the leaseholder a notice requiring payment before the sum can be due. These regulations set out the form and content of notices requiring the payment of ground rent. The additional requirements specified in reg 2 include the provision of notes for both leaseholders and landlords. The content of the notes is set out in the Schedule to the Regs, as part of the prescribed form of notice under s 166(1).
