Section 45: Market rent only option: disputes

294.The Secretary of State may by regulations empower the Adjudicator to resolve disputes relating to a Market Rent Only option offer.

295.He may also by regulations give the Adjudicator authority to determine whether a proposed tenancy or licence meets the requirements for being MRO-compliant, whether an independent assessor’s determination of the market rent has been made in accordance with the Pubs Code, and whether any other required MRO procedure has been followed. These regulations may also specify circumstances in which the Adjudicator has the authority to decide the market rent of a pub tenancy or licence.

296.The provisions in sections 43 and 44 are separate from the arbitration provisions in sections 48 to 52; nothing in the latter applies to the former, though there may be some similarities in the provisions made under sections 43 and 44.
