Rent1 apportionment at end of tenancy


1 This summary applies to annual rent and interim rent payable under section 34 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954. Final payments of other sums due under a lease, such as service charge and insurance payments are not necessarily apportioned in the same way.

2 References to a "section" or "sections" are to sections of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.

3 Some tenants like to serve section 27(1) notices because they create finality. We appreciate that this may not be each tenant's practice.
