Section 35: Special provision where buyer is a general partner in a limited partnership
110.This section makes special provision for the valuation of land under section 34(2) where the right to buy is exercised by a general partner in a limited partnership that is the tenant under a lease constituting a 1991 Act tenancy entered into before the coming into force of section 72 (rights of certain persons where tenant is a limited partnership). Such a general partner is able, in certain circumstances in accordance with section 72, to exercise the right to buy under section 28 as if that general partner were the tenant. In such a case, the valuer, in assessing the value of the land under section 34(2), is to have regard to the fact that the buyer is not a sitting tenant in their own right under a 1991 Act tenancy, but is a general partner of a limited partnership . The valuer also is to have regard to any provision of the partnership agreement entitling a limited partner to dissolve the partnership. Section 34(2)(a)(ii) is to have no effect in respect of such a valuation, and so the valuer is not to carry out the assessment of the value on the basis that the buyer is a sitting tenant.
