Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

SPECIAL ACCOMMODATION GROUNDS

Ground C (charities)

3(1)The landlord is a charity and the contract-holder’s continued occupation of the dwelling would conflict with the objects of the charity.

(2)But this ground is not available to the landlord (“L”) unless, at the time the contract was made and at all times after that, the person in the position of landlord (whether L or another person) has been a charity.

(3)In this paragraph “charity” has the same meaning as in the Charities Act 2011 (c. 25) (see section 1 of that Act).

Ground D (dwelling suitable for disabled people)

4The dwelling has features which are substantially different from those of ordinary dwellings and which are designed to make it suitable for occupation by a physically disabled person who requires accommodation of a kind provided by the dwelling and—

(a)there is no longer such a person living in the dwelling, and

(b)the landlord requires the dwelling for occupation by such a person (whether alone or with members of that person’s family).

Ground E (housing associations and housing trusts: people difficult to house)

5(1)The landlord is a housing association or housing trust which makes dwellings available only for occupation (whether alone or with others) by people who are difficult to house, and—

(a)either there is no longer such a person living in the dwelling or a local housing authority has offered the contract-holder a right to occupy another dwelling under a secure contract, and

(b)the landlord requires the dwelling for occupation by such a person (whether alone or with members of that person’s family).

(2)A person is difficult to house if that person’s circumstances (other than financial circumstances) make it especially difficult for him or her to satisfy his or her need for housing.

Ground F (groups of dwellings for people with special needs)

6The dwelling constitutes part of a group of dwellings which it is the practice of the landlord to make available for occupation by persons with special needs and—

(a)a social service or special facility is provided in close proximity to the group of dwellings in order to assist persons with those special needs,

(b)there is no longer a person with those special needs living in the dwelling, and

(c)the landlord requires the dwelling for occupation by a person who has those special needs (whether alone or with members of his or her family).
