(e)on the assumption that (subject to paragraph (a) above) the vendor was selling subject, in respect of rentcharges and other rents to which section 11(2) below applies, to the same annual charge as the conveyance to the tenant is to be subject to, but the purchaser would otherwise be effectively exonerated until the termination of the tenancy from any liability or charge in respect of tenant’s incumbrances ; and

(f)on the assumption that (subject to paragraphs (a) and (b) above) the vendor was selling with and subject to the rights and burdens with and subject to which the conveyance to the tenant is to be made, and in particular with and subject to such permanent or extended rights and burdens as are to be created in order to give effect to section 10 below.

(1B)For the purpose of determining whether the rateable value of the house and premises is above £1,000 in Greater London, or £500 elsewhere, the rateable value shall be adjusted to take into account any tenant’s improvements in accordance with Schedule 8 to the Housing Act 1974.

(5)This section shall come into force on the passing of this Act.

13(1)The provisions of this paragraph apply on and after the operative date in any case where—E+W

(a)a tenancy of a dwelling-house under which the interest of the landlord belonged to a housing association has come to an end at a time before the operative date (whether before or after the passing of this Act), and

(b)on the date when it came to an end, the tenancy was one to which sections 60 to 66 of the 1972 Act applied, and

(c)if the tenancy had come to an end after the operative date it would, by virtue of section 18(1) of this Act, have then been a protected tenancy.

(2)No order for possession of the dwelling-house shall be made which would not be made if the tenancy had been a protected tenancy at the time it came to an end.

(3)Where a court has made an order for possession of the dwelling-house before the operative date, but the order has not been executed, the court, if of opinion that the order would not have been made if the tenancy had been a protected tenancy when it came to an end may, on the application of the person against whom it was made, rescind or vary it in such manner as the court thinks fit for the purpose of enabling him to continue in possession.

(4)If on the operative date the person who was the tenant under the tenancy which has come to an end duly retains possession of the dwelling-house, he shall be deemed to do so as a statutory tenant under a regulated tenancy and as a person who became a statutory tenant on the termination of a protected tenancy under which he was the tenant.

(5)If on the operative date a person duly retains possession of the dwelling-house as being a person who, in the circumstances described in paragraph 1(3)(c) above, would have been the first successor, within the meaning of Schedule 1 to the 1971 Act he shall be deemed to do so as the statutory tenant under a regulated tenancy and as a person who became a statutory tenant by virtue of paragraph 2 or paragraph 3 of that Schedule.

(6)If on the operative date a person duly retains possession of the dwelling-house as being a person who, in the circumstances described in paragraph 1(3)(c) above, would have become the statutory tenant on the death of a first successor, he shall be deemed to do so as the statutory tenant under a regulated tenancy and as a person who became a statutory tenant by virtue of paragraph 6 or paragraph 7 of Schedule 1 to the 1971 Act.

(7)References in the preceding provisions of this paragraph to a person duly retaining possession of a dwelling-house are references to his retaining possession without any order for possession having been made or, where such an order has been made,—

(a)during any period while its operation is postponed or its execution is suspended; or

(b)after it has been rescinded.

(8)Subject to sub-paragraph (9) below, the tenancy referred to in sub-paragraph (1) above shall be treated as the original contract of tenancy for the purposes of section 12 of the 1971 Act (terms and conditions of statutory tenancies) in relation to a statutory tenancy imposed by any of sub-paragraphs (4) to (6) above.

(9)The court may by order vary all or any of the terms of a statutory tenancy imposed by any of sub-paragraphs (4) to (6) above in any way appearing to the court to be just and equitable (and whether or not in a way authorised by the provisions of sections 22 and 23 of the 1971 Act).

14(1)This paragraph applies to—E+W

(a)a tenancy which becomes a protected tenancy by virtue of section 18(1) of this Act;

(b)a statutory tenancy which is deemed to arise under paragraph 13 above; and

(c)a statutory tenancy arising on the termination of any such tenancy as is referred to in head (a) or (b) of this sub-paragraph.

(2)The contractual rent limit for any contractual period of a tenancy to which this paragraph applies or the limit of rent recoverable for any statutory period of that tenancy shall be determined as follows—

(a)where no rent has been registered for the dwelling-house under the previous housing association tenancy, the limit for the purposes of section 19(1) or, subject to sections 22 to 24, of section 21(1) of the 1971 Act, shall be the rent recoverable for the last rental period of that tenancy determined in accordance with section 62(3) of the 1972 Act, until either—

(i)a rent is registered for the dwelling-house under Part IV of the 1971 Act, or

(ii)a rent agreement with a tenant having security of tenure is entered into with respect to the dwelling-house;

(b)where a rent has been registered for the dwelling-house under the previous housing association tenancy and the rent recoverable for the last rental period of that tenancy was that registered rent, the limit, for the purposes of section 19(2) or section 21(2) of the 1971 Act, but subject to the provisions of those sections, shall be the registered rent until either—

(i)a new rent is registered for the dwelling-house under Part IV of the 1971 Act, or

(ii)the rent registered for the dwelling-house is cancelled in terms of section 44A of the 1971 Act;

(c)where a rent has been registered for the dwelling-house under the previous housing association tenancy and the rent recoverable for the last rental period of that tenancy was determined in accordance with section 63 of the 1972 Act, the limit, for the purposes of section 19(2) or of section 21(2) of the 1971 Act, shall be the rent limit as determined in accordance with the said section 63 of the 1972 Act and, for this purpose, that registration and the provisions of sections 62(4), 63(2) to (4) and 67 of that Act shall subject to the provisions of sub-paragraph (3) of this paragraph, continue to apply or, as the case may require, shall apply to the rent of a dwelling-house under a tenancy to which this paragraph applies as if that tenancy had been a tenancy to which sections 60 to 66 of the 1972 Act applied, until either—

(i)a new rent is registered for the dwelling-house under Part IV of the 1971 Act, or

(ii)the rent registered for the dwelling-house is cancelled in terms of section 44A of the 1971 Act;

(d)where a rent has been registered for the dwelling-house and the Secretary of State has given a direction under section 64(4) of the 1972 Act, specifying the rent limit for the dwelling-house under the previous housing association tenancy, the limit, for the purposes of section 19(2) or of section 21(2) of the 1971 Act, shall be the rent limit specified in the direction and, for this purpose, the provisions of sections 62(1), (2), (4) and (5), 64 and 67 of the 1972 Act shall continue to apply or, as the case may require, shall apply to the rent of a dwelling-house under a tenancy to which this paragraph applies as if that tenancy had been a tenancy to which sections 60 to 66 of the 1972 Act applies, until—

(i)the direction ceases to have effect (whether because any condition included in the direction is not complied with or because the period for which the direction has effect ends), or

(ii)a new rent is registered for the dwelling-house under Part IV of the 1971 Act (whether or not the new rent exceeds the rent provisionally registered or the rent specified in the direction);

and where any of the events specified in the foregoing provisions of this sub-paragraph take place the said limits shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of the Rent (Scotland) Acts 1971 and 1972.

(3)In the application, by virtue of sub-paragraph (2)(c) of this paragraph, of subsection (2) of section 63 of the 1972 Act to the rent of a dwelling-house subject to a statutory tenancy which is deemed to arise under paragraph 13 above, that subsection shall be deemed to have continued to apply throughout the period between the termination of the tenancy referred to in paragraph 13(1)(a) above and the operative date; but nothing in this sub-paragraph shall affect the rent recoverable for that dwelling-house at any time during that period.

(4)In the case where sub-paragraph (2)(c) of this paragraph applies, and the rent limit therein referred to is the rent limit as determined in accordance with section 63 of the 1972 Act, any notice of increase under section 21(2)(b) of the 1971 Act shall not increase the rent for any statutory period of a tenancy to which this paragraph applies above the rent limit as so determined, and any such notice which purports to increase it further shall have effect to increase it to that limit but no further.

(5)In the application of section 24(1) of the 1971 Act (increase of rent for improvements) to a tenancy to which this paragraph applies, for the reference to 8th December 1965 (the date after which the improvement must be completed) there shall be substituted a reference to the operative date.

(6)Section 42 of the 1971 Act (determination of fair rent) shall apply in relation to a tenancy to which this paragraph applies as if the reference in subsection (3) of the said section 42 to the tenant under the regulated tenancy included references to the tenant under the previous housing association tenancy.

(7)Any right conferred upon a tenant by section 31 of the 1971 Act, as applied by section 62(5) of the 1972 Act, to recover any amount by deducting it from rent should be exercisable by deducting it from rent for any rental period beginning after the tenancy has become a tenancy to which this paragraph applies to the same extent as the right would have been exercisable if the tenancy had not become such a tenancy.

(8)The fact that the tenancy has become a tenancy to which this paragraph applies should not be taken as affecting any court proceedings which are pending under section 67(3) of the 1972 Act at the time when the tenancy becomes such a tenancy and a decision on which may affect the recoverable rent for any period before that time or the rent under the tenancy to which this paragraph applies so far as that depends upon the recoverable rent before that time.

15E+WThe sheriff shall have jurisdiction, either in the course of any proceedings relating to a dwelling-house or on an application made for the purpose by the landlord or the tenant, to determine any question—

(a)as to the application of this Part of this Schedule to any tenancy or as to any matter which is or may become material for determining any such question, or

(b)as to the amount of rent recoverable under a tenancy to which paragraph 13 above applies;

and section 123(1) of the 1971 Act shall apply to any application to the sheriff under this paragraph as it applies to any application under any of the provisions mentioned in section 123(3) of that Act.

16E+WIn this Part of this Schedule—

  • “the 1971 Act means the M12Rent (Scotland) Act 1971;

  • “the 1972 Act means the M13Housing (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1972;

  • “the court means “the sheriff;

  • “the previous housing association tenancy, in relation to a tenancy to which paragraph 14 above applies, means the tenancy to which sections 60 to 66 of the 1972 Act applied which either became the protected tenancy by virtue of section 18(1) of this Act or came to an end as mentioned in paragraph 13(1)(a) above; and

other expressions used in this Part of this Schedule which are also used in the Rent (Scotland) Acts 1971 and 1972 shall have the same meanings in this Part as they have in those Acts.

SCHEDULE 8E+W Reduction of Rateable Value in Case of Certain Improvements

1(1)Where the tenant, or any previous tenant, has made or contributed to the cost of an improvement on the premises comprised in the tenancy and the improvement is one to which this Schedule applies, then, if the tenant serves on the landlord a notice in the prescribed form requiring him to agree to a reduction under this Schedule, their rateable value as ascertained for the purposes of [F38 section 1 of the Leasehold Reform Act 1967]F38 shall be reduced by such amount, if any, as may be agreed or determined in accordance with the following provisions of this Schedule.E+W

(2)This Schedule applies to any improvement made by the execution of works amounting to structural alteration, extension or addition.

Textual Amendments

2(1)The amount of any such reduction may at any time be agreed in writing between the landlord and the tenant.E+W

(2)Where, at the expiration of a period of six weeks from the service of a notice under paragraph 1 of this Schedule any of the following matters has not been agreed in writing between the landlord and the tenant, that is to say,—

(a)whether the improvement specified in the notice is an improvement to which this Schedule applies;

(b)what works were involved in it;

(c)whether the tenant or a previous tenant under the tenancy has made it or contributed to its cost; and

(d)what proportion his contribution, if any, bears to the whole cost;

the county court may on the application of the tenant determine that matter, F39...

(3)An application under the last foregoing sub-paragraph must be made within six weeks from the expiration of the period mentioned therein or such longer time as the court may allow.

3(1)Where, after the service of a notice under paragraph 1 of this Schedule, it is agreed in writing between the landlord and tenant or determined by the county court—E+W

(a)that the improvement specified in the notice is one to which this Schedule applies, and what works were involved in it, and

(b)that the tenant or a previous tenant under the tenancy has made it or contributed to its cost, and, in the latter case, what proportion his contribution bears to the whole cost, then if, at the expiration of a period of two weeks from the agreement or determination, it has not been agreed in writing between the landlord and the tenant whether any or what reduction is to be made under this Schedule, and the tenant, within four weeks from the expiration of that period, makes an application to the valuation officer for a certificate under the next following sub-paragraph, that question shall be determined in accordance with the certificate unless the landlord and the tenant otherwise agree in writing.

(2)On any such application the valuation officer shall certify—

(3)An application for such a certificate shall be in the prescribed form and shall state the name and address of the landlord, and the Valuation Officer shall send a copy of the certificate to the landlord.

(4)Where the amount of the reduction under this Schedule falls to be determined in accordance with such a certificate, it shall be equal to the amount specified in pursuance of head (b) of sub-paragraph (2) of this paragraph, but proportionately reduced in any case where a proportion only of the cost was contributed by the tenant or a previous tenant under the tenancy.

(5)Where at the time of an application for a certificate under this paragraph a proposal for an alteration in the valuation list relating to the hereditament is pending and the alteration would have effect from a date earlier than the 2nd April, 1973, the Valuation Officer shall not issue the certificate until the proposal is settled.

Note 3

If the amount of the reduction is not agreed in writing between the landlord and the tenant, the Valuation Officer will have to decide whether the improvement has affected the rateable value of the premises, and if so, what that value would have been had the improvement not been made. The name and address of the Valuation Officer can be obtained from the local authority. Before, however, an application is made to the Valuation Officer, the landlord and the tenant must try to agree in writing on the items mentioned at (a) to (d) of this paragraph, or such of those items as are material. If at the end of a period of six weeks after the service of this notice any of these items have not been agreed, the tenant may, within a further six weeks or so much longer time as the court may allow, apply to the county court to settle the matter.

If it has either been agreed or determined by the county court that there has been an improvement of the kind described in Note 1 involving specified works, and that the improvement was carried out by the tenant or a previous tenant, or that the tenant or a previous tenant contributed to its cost, and in the latter case what proportion the contribution bears to the whole cost of the works, then, if within a period of two weeks after the agreement or determination of the county court the landlord and the tenant have still not agreed in writing whether any or what reduction is to be made, the tenant has a further four weeks in which to make an application in the statutory form to the Valuation Officer for a certificate as to whether or not the improvement has affected the rateable value, and if so, the amount by which that value would have been less if the improvement had not been made.
