Control provisions: decisions on applications and appealsF1N.I.

75E.—(1) Control provisions may enable the Executive, on an application for first registration of a house or a renewal or variation of registration—

(a)to refuse the application on the ground that the house is unsuitable and incapable of being made suitable for such occupation as would be permitted if the application were granted;

(b)to refuse the application on the ground that the person having control of the house or the person intended to be the person managing the house is not a fit and proper person;

(c)to require as a condition of granting the application that such works as will make the house suitable for such occupation as would be permitted if the application were granted are executed within such time as the Executive may determine;

(d)to impose such conditions relating to the management of the house during the period of registration as the Executive may determine.

(2) Control provisions shall provide that the Executive shall give an applicant a written statement of its reasons where it—

(a)refuses to grant his application for first registration or for a renewal or variation of registration,

(b)requires the execution of works as a condition of granting such an application, or

(c)imposes conditions relating to the management of the house.

(3) Where the Executive—

(a)notifies an applicant that it refuses to grant his application for first registration or for the renewal or variation of a registration,

(b)notifies an applicant that it requires the execution of works as a condition of granting such an application,

(c)notifies an applicant that it intends to impose conditions relating to the management of the house, or

(d)does not within the specified period of receiving the application, register the house or vary or renew the registration in accordance with the application,

the applicant may, within 21 days of being so notified or of the end of the specified period, appeal to the county court.

In this paragraph “the specified period” means such period as the registration scheme shall specify.

(4) On appeal the court may confirm, reverse or vary the decision of the Executive.

(5) Where the decision of the Executive was a refusal—

(a)to grant an application for first registration of a house, or

(b)for the renewal or variation of the registration,

the court may direct the Executive to grant the application as made or as varied in such manner as the court may direct.

(6) For the purposes of paragraphs (4) and (5) an appeal under paragraph (3)(d) shall be treated as an appeal against a decision of the Executive to refuse the application.

(7) Where the decision of the Executive was to impose conditions relating to the management of the house, the court may direct the Executive to grant the application without imposing the conditions or to impose the conditions as varied in such manner as the court may direct.
