Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002

The 1993 Act

422.Paragraphs 12 to 15 amend the 1993 Act.  Paragraph 13 provides that certain persons who currently have the right to appear at a hearing before a LVT only have the right to do so where there is to be an oral hearing (in consequence of the new provision for certain cases to be dealt with through written representations only).  It also replicates the effect of section 91(10)(b) of the 1993 Act which will be repealed as part of the consolidation exercise (Schedule 14), whilst widening its effect to apply to certain persons who make representations to a LVT, even if they did not appear at a hearing.  Again this is a consequence of the new provision for certain cases to be dealt with by written representations only.  Paragraphs 14 and 15 amend references to a rent assessment committee, in consequence of section 173.
