There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Law of Property Act 1969. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.

(1)After section 24 of the Act of 1954 there shall be inserted the following section:—
“24A(1)The landlord of a tenancy to which this Part of this Act applies may,—
(a)if he has given notice under section 25 of this Act to terminate the tenancy ; or
(b)if the tenant has made a request for a new tenancy in accordance with section 26 of this Act ;
apply to the court to determine a rent which it would be reasonable for the tenant to pay while the tenancy continues by virtue of section 24 of this Act, and the court may determine a rent accordingly.
(2)A rent determined in proceedings under this section shall be deemed to be the rent payable under the tenancy from the date on which the proceedings were commenced or the date specified in the landlord’s notice or the tenant’s request, whichever is the later.
(3)In determining a rent under this section the court shall have regard to the rent payable under the terms of the tenancy, but otherwise subsections (1) and (2) of section 34 of this Act shall apply to the determination as they would apply to the determination of a rent under that section if a new tenancy from year to year of the whole of the property comprised in the tenancy were granted to the tenant by order of the court.”
(2)In section 24(1)(a) of the Act of 1954 for the words “the next following section” there shall be substituted the words “section 25 of this Act”.
