Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

4(1)Without prejudice to section 99(2)(d) of this Act, no provisional notice or improvement notice may be served in respect of a dwelling before the operative date if the person having control of the dwelling is a housing association and the dwelling is a dwelling-house falling within any of paragraphs (a) to (d) of subsection (6) of section 5 of the Rent Act 1968 (tenancies of certain dwelling houses excluded from protection under that Act).

(2)If, after a provisional notice or an improvement notice has been served in respect of any dwelling but before the operative date, a housing association becomes the person having control of the dwelling and, by virtue of sub-paragraph (1) above, no such notice could then be served in respect of the dwelling, any such notice with respect to the dwelling and any undertaking accepted under Part VIII of this Act with respect to the dwelling shall cease to have effect.
