Serve Notices

With reliable advice and professional assistance from freehold experts

Cost-effective solutions for serving notices to leaseholders

Owning a freehold comes with many responsibilities, not least is serving notices to leaseholders.

If you do not follow the correct procedures and adhere to legal requirements when you serve notices, you can find yourself in a very tricky position. This can include hefty fines and at the worst, criminal charges. 

It is therefore crucial that you serve the correct notices to leaseholders at the appropriate times, ensuring that you follow legal processes accurately. 

To make things a little easier for you, we offer a variety of solutions that can help you to save time and money when complying with Section 3, 5, 20 and 166. From 100% free and legal notice templates, to low-cost, bespoke services, you can find all the resources that you need to fulfil your legal obligations as a freeholder. 

Free templates for Section 3, 20 and 166 are available for you directly from our website, to help you avoid any costs of obtaining these elsewhere. We’ll also provide you with instructions on how to prepare the forms. 

For Section 5 and 166 Notices, we can act on your behalf and serve the notices for you. This service is ideal if you want to avoid additional legal costs, do not feel confident serving the notices yourself or if you want to ensure that they’re served quickly and efficiently. It can also save you a lot of time and unnecessary stress. We offer the Section 166 Notice service for a fixed fee; however, we are able to provide the Section 5 Right of First Refusal Notice service at no cost to you. 

If you’re selling your freehold ground rents to us, we’ll serve all the relevant notices on your behalf and absorb the cost for doing so.
