Paragraph 1

90.This paragraph sets out what constitutes the introductory period during which an occupation contract granted by a community landlord is a periodic standard contract (because of the exception in paragraph 3 of Schedule 3)

91.Where a community landlord has sought to terminate the contract through making a possession claim, or given notice to the contract-holder of its intention to do so, but the claim has not concluded, the contract will remain a standard contract beyond the introductory period until:

  • the notice is withdrawn,

  • the time for making the claim runs out without the claim being pursued,

  • the claim is determined in favour of the contract-holder, or

  • the contract ends without any of those events having happened.
