Major Works and Section 20 Notices
Schedule 4 - Part 1 and Part 2
Schedule 4 (Part 1) – Qualifying Works Where Public Notice is Required
Due to the sum of the works, the landlord is legally required to advertise the proposed contract by Public Notice on the Find a Tender Service.
A two-stage S20 consultation will be carried out:
- The Stage 1 notice will give leaseholders the opportunity to raise observations but they will not have the right to nominate a contractor
- The Stage 2 notice will include the estimated costs given by the contractor
Each will last for a minimum of 30 days.
Schedule 4 (Part 2) - Qualifying Works Where Public Notice is Not Required
If the cost of the works mean the landlord will not be required to advertise by Public Notice.
They will not use a contractor through an existing long-term agreement (as per Schedule 3)
Instead the landlord will go through a full tendering process:
- a two-stage S20 consultation will be carried out (each lasting a minimum of 30 days)
- the Stage 1 notice will give homeowners the opportunity to raise observations and they will have the right to nominate a contractor
- the Stage 2 notice will give estimated costs following tender returns.
After this we can enter into a contract for the works.
If we do not give the contract to a contractor you have nominated or to the contractor with the lowest estimate:
- we will write to you saying why we chose a different contractor
- and give a summary of your comments and our response to those comments.
