Revised legislation carried on this site may not be fully up to date. Changes and effects are recorded by our editorial team in lists which can be found in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ area. Where those effects have yet to be applied to the text of the legislation by the editorial team they are also listed alongside the legislation in the affected provisions.

This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing. Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.
Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:
(1)Where the original disposal consisted of entering into a contract, the requisite majority of qualifying tenants of the constituent flats may by notice to the landlord elect that the contract shall have effect as if entered into not with the purchaser but with a person or persons nominated for the purposes of this section by the requisite majority of qualifying tenants of the constituent flats.
(2)Any such notice must be served before the end of the period of six months beginning—
(a)if a notice was served on the purchaser under section 11A (right to information as to terms of disposal, &c.), with the date on which the purchaser complied with that notice;
(b)in any other case, with the date by which documents of any description—
(i)indicating that the original disposal has taken place, and
(ii)alerting the tenants to the existence of their rights under this Part and the time within which any such rights must be exercised,
have been served on the requisite majority of qualifying tenants of the constituent flats.
(3)The notice shall not have effect as mentioned in subsection (1) unless the nominated person—
(a)fulfils any requirements as to the deposit required on entering into the contract, and
(b)fulfils any other conditions required to be fulfilled by the purchaser on entering into the contract.
(4)Unless otherwise agreed, any time limit in the contract as it has effect by virtue of a notice under this section shall start to run again on the service of that notice; and nothing in the contract as it has effect by virtue of a notice under this section shall require the nominated person to complete the purchase before the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the day on which he is deemed to have entered into the contract.
(5)Where the original disposal related to other property in addition to premises to which this Part applied at the time of the disposal—
(a)a notice under this section has effect only in relation to the premises to which this Part applied at the time of the original disposal, and
(b)the terms of the contract shall have effect with any necessary modifications.
In such a case the notice under this section may specify the subject-matter of the disposal, and the terms on which the disposal is to be made (whether doing so expressly or by reference to the original disposal), or may provide for that estate or interest, or any such terms, to be determined by a leasehold valuation tribunal.]
