This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

65Extended possession order against sub-holder
This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)This section applies if—

(a)the contract-holder (“C”) under an occupation contract (“the head contract”) enters into a sub-occupation contract in accordance with the head contract, and

(b)after the sub-occupation contract is entered into, C’s landlord makes a possession claim against C.

(2)In the proceedings on the claim against C, C’s landlord may apply for an order for possession against the sub-holder (“S”) (an “extended possession order”); but an application under this subsection may be made only if—

(a)the requirements set out in subsection (3) have been met, or

(b)the court considers it reasonable to dispense with those requirements.

(3)The requirements are as follows—

(a)C’s landlord must have given S a copy of the notice mentioned in subsection (1)(b) of section 64 in accordance with subsection (2) of that section, and

(b)at the same time, C’s landlord must have given S notice—

(i)of C’s landlord’s intention to apply for an extended possession order in the proceedings on the claim against C, and

(ii)of S’s right to be a party to proceedings on the possession claim against C.

(4)Where C’s landlord may apply for an extended possession order against S, S is entitled to be a party to proceedings on the possession claim against C (regardless of whether C’s landlord makes an application for an extended possession order in the proceedings).

(5)The court may consider C’s landlord’s application for an extended possession order only if it has decided to make an order for possession against C.

(6)The court may make an extended possession order against S only if, had C made a possession claim against S, the court would have made an order for possession against S.
