Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello. I’m George and I’m your solicitor. I have a Master's in Law and six years’ experience. Please allow me some time to review the information.
Before I can provide you with an answer to your question, I need a little bit more information.
1. Did the tenant receive a landlord warning notice before the new lease was entered into? A landlord warning notice states that the lease being offered will not have security of tenure – in other words, the tenant will have no right to a new lease at the end of the contractual term.
2. Did the tenant make a declaration confirming that it understood the new lease would be contracted out of the security of tenure provisions of the LTA 1954 before the new lease was entered into?
3. If so, was the declaration a simple or a statutory declaration?
4. If simple, was the declaration made at least 14 days before the new lease was entered into?
