Tenant's acknowledgment of service of a landlord's claim for an unopposed lease renewal
This is an example reply by a defendant tenant to a claim by a landlord for an unopposed lease renewal under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 (LTA 1954).
The Part 8 procedure (as amended by Civil Procedure Rule (CPR) 56) must be used in an unopposed lease renewal claim. The reply must be set out in an acknowledgment of service using Form N210 (Practice Direction (PD) 56.3.11).
There is no need to serve a separate defence.
The reply also includes a tenant's application for interim rent under section 24A of the LTA 1954.
