Changes to Legislation

Changes and effects yet to be applied by the editorial team are only applicable when viewing the latest version or prospective version of legislation.

To view the ‘Changes to Legislation’ information for this provision return to the latest version view using the options provided in the ‘What Version’ box above.

[F110 Lapse of landlord’s offer.E+W

(1)If after a landlord has served an offer notice the premises concerned cease to be premises to which this Part applies, the landlord may serve a notice on the qualifying tenants of the constituent flats stating—

(a)that the premises have ceased to be premises to which this Part applies, and

(b)that the offer notice, and anything done in pursuance of it, is to be treated as not having been served or done;

and on the service of such a notice the provisions of this Part cease to have effect in relation to that disposal.

(2)A landlord who has not served such a notice on all of the qualifying tenants of the constituent flats shall nevertheless be treated as having duly served a notice under subsection (1)—

(a)if he has served such a notice on not less than 90% of those tenants, or

(b)where those qualifying tenants number less than ten, if he has served such a notice on all but one of them.

(3)Where the landlord is entitled to serve a notice under subsection (1) but does not do so, this Part shall continue to have effect in relation to the disposal in question as if the premises in question were still premises to which this Part applies.

(4)The above provisions of this section do not apply after a binding contract for the disposal of the protected interest—

(a)has been entered into by the landlord and the nominated person, or

(b)has otherwise come into existence between the landlord and the nominated person by virtue of any provision of this Part.

(5)Where a binding contract for the disposal of the protected interest has been entered into between the landlord and the nominated person but it has been lawfully rescinded by the landlord, the landlord may, during the period of 12 months beginning with the date of the rescission of the contract, dispose of that interest to such person (and on such terms) as he thinks fit.]
