RHW20 Serious Rent Arrears Notice

The prescribed form RHW20 is used where a contract holder of an occupation contract is seriously in arrears with their rent.

The contract-holder is seriously in arrears with their rent—

  • where the rental period is a week, a fortnight or four weeks if at least eight weeks' rent is unpaid;
  • where the rental period is a month if at least two months' rent is unpaid;
  • where the rental period is a quarter, if at least one quarter's rent is more than three months in arrears;
  • where the rental period is a year if at least 25% of the rent is more than three months in arrears.

RHW20 cannot be used for any other purpose.
