Making Sense of Section 25 Notice
(Landlord and Tenants Act 1954)
The Parliament of UK passed and made the Landlord and Tenants Act part of the law in 1954. The purpose behind the implementation of the Act was to make sure that the state is able to grant and govern the obligations and rights that exist in a relationship between a tenant and a landlord for business purposes. There are several sections that can be used by either party to protect their rights, and one of them is a Section 25 Notice.
What is a Section 25 Notice?
Section 25 Notice applies to situations where the lease of the property is a business lease. Once a business lease ends, tenants have been granted statutory protection to continue their stay in the property as long as either the lease has been reviewed or the tenant’s new lease request is rejected.

A Section 25 Notice is primarily a show of intent by the Landlord to the tenant once their business lease has expired. This notice is used by the Landlord to either offer new terms of lease to the tenant whom he may agree on and extend his stay or the notice may oppose renewal.

Certain Giveaways
Here is a look at some of the things that one should take note of before serving a Section 25 notice:
  • The notice can be served any time after the last six months of the lease have been entered into.
  • If the tenant has served a Section 26 Notice, they cannot be served with a Section 25 Notice.
  • If a tenant does not respond to the Section 25 Notice, the terms of the new lease will be assumed to be accepted by the tenants, if the notice stipulates no renewal and an end to the tenancy, the date mentioned on it will be accepted as binding.
