About this document
This notice complies with Section 40(1) of the LTA 1954. It is suitable for landlords and agents of landlords.
It is to be used by a landlord who wishes to enquire as to the occupation of the tenant and any sub-tenants so that he can make an informed decision about whether to renew the tenancy.
A notice should be served in plenty of time to allow time to respond and for the landlord to then issue the relevant forms after. The process is described here.
We suggest eight months before the end of the tenancy. There are certain time requirements to be complied with when serving a section 25 or issuing a section 26 notice (which of course may well be served after you serve a s40 notice). By acting early, you can get the result you want.
There is a slightly different version of this form to use if the tenant is requesting information.
