Application for an order under section 20C of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985

It is important that you read the notes below very carefully before you complete this form.

This is the correct form to use if you wish to apply to the Tribunal for an order under section 20C of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, if you have not already applied for such an order as part of the other tribunal proceedings to which your application relates.

Applications should be sent as a Microsoft Word document by email to the relevant regional tribunal address shown in the Annex to this form. You must also send by email the documents listed in section 11 of this form. If you cannot access email or find someone to assist you in lodging your application by email, then a paper application will be acceptable although there may be a delay in dealing with this. Sending an application on paper will not be suitable in urgent cases.

Please make sure a copy of the application is served on the other party/parties to the application. If you are unable to serve a copy on the other party/parties, please bring this to the tribunal’s attention in the covering email or if sending by post in a covering letter.

Please do not send any other documents. When further evidence is needed, you will be asked to send it in separately.


If you have any questions about how to fill in this form, the fee payable, or the procedures the Tribunal will use please contact the appropriate regional office.

NOTE: Section 20C of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 (‘the 1985 Act’) provides that a tenant may apply to the Tribunal for an order that all or any of the costs incurred, or to be incurred, by the landlord in connection with proceedings before a Tribunal are not to be regarded as relevant costs to be taken into account in determining the amount of any service charge payable by the tenant or any other person or persons specified in the application.

If you are completing this form by hand please use BLOCK CAPITAL LETTERS.
