About this document

This Section 40 notice complies with Section 40(1) of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954. It is suitable for any tenant requiring information from the landlord so that he can make an informed decision about whether or not to renew the business lease.

The tenant should use this form when he requires further information about the property or landlord in order to make an informed decision about whether to renew or end the tenancy.

The form should be served on the landlord during the last two years of the lease. The landlord must respond within one month, and must ensure the information is up-to-date for the next six months. The courts can, if necessary, order parties to comply. Act early and get the result you want.
