Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order revokes the Right to Purchase (Application Form) (Scotland) Order 1993 and prescribes another form of notice which is to be used by any secure tenant within the meaning of Part III of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987, when exercising the right to purchase a dwellinghouse conferred by section 61 of that Act. The notice in this Order has been redesigned. The notice contains–

(a)a statement that the tenant or joint tenants wish to exercise the right to purchase;

(b)a statement of consent to the exercise of that right by his spouse or their spouses or of any joint tenant who does not wish to share in the exercise of that right;

(c)the names of any joint purchasers included or proposed for inclusion by the tenant or tenants;

(d)a statement of the periods of occupation of publicly owned housing on which the tenant or tenants base their claim to the right to purchase and to discount; and

(e)the details of any improvements made to the dwellinghouse by the tenant.


1987 c. 26; section 63(1) was amended by the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (c. 28), section 143(1) and (2)(a). The functions of the Secretary of State were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46).
