Rent review notice of reference to a third party

If it is not possible to settle the rent review amicably during negotiations, the rent review clause will generally lay down a procedure for the appointment of a third party. Provision will usually be made for the parties to attempt to agree themselves on the identity of a third party, or, in the absence of agreement, to apply to the president of RICS to make the appointment.

This is a sample letter used to inform one of the parties that the rent review has been referred to a third party.

IMPORTANT: This letter is for general guidance only. You must read the lease and are strongly advised to take legal advice if this letter/notice is being served in accordance with specific terms of the lease. Such letter/notice may be invalid if directions in the lease are not strictly observed.
