What are major works?

From time to time, major works are required to best maintain a property. These can be to the external and internal communal areas, as well as the fabric of the building to address wear and tear.

To protect the rights of leaseholders, there is a clear consultation process to follow before any major works can begin. This legal requirement is known as ‘Section 20’ consultation because that’s where it appears in the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985. It applies to qualifying work costing any one leaseholder over £250. Our guide explains more and answers common questions.
