Status

The term provision is used to describe a definable element in a piece of legislation that has legislative effect – such as a Part, Chapter or section. A version of a provision is prospective either:

  1. where the provision (Part, Chapter or section) has never come into force or;
  2. where the text of the provision is subject to change, but no date has yet been appointed by the appropriate person or body for those changes to come into force.

Commencement Orders listed in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ box as not yet applied may bring this prospective version into force.

This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

2(1)This section applies where a periodic standard contract is created by an order under section 116.E+W

(2)If the landlord and the contract-holder agree the terms of the periodic standard contract, the terms of the contract are the terms agreed.

(3)Sub-paragraph (2) is subject to the provisions of this Act about the incorporation of fundamental and supplementary provisions.

(4)If the landlord and the contract-holder do not agree the terms of the periodic standard contract—

(a)the fundamental and supplementary provisions applicable to periodic standard contracts are incorporated as terms of the contract without modification,

(b)any terms of the contract which are incompatible with those fundamental or supplementary provisions cease to have effect, and

(c)otherwise, the terms of the periodic standard contract are the same as the terms of the secure contract.

(5)Whether or not the landlord and contract holder agree the terms of the periodic standard contract, it is a term of the contract that—

(a)any arrears of rent payable at the end of the secure contract become payable under the periodic standard contract, and

(b)any rent paid in advance or overpaid at the end of the secure contract is credited to the contract-holder's liability to pay rent under the periodic standard contract.

(6)The requirement in section 39(1) (landlord must give contract-holder a contact address at start of contract) does not apply.

(7)Section 151(3) (requirement to inform contract-holder of right to apply for landlord's review under section 202) provides that that section is a fundamental provision which is incorporated as a term of all prohibited conduct standard contracts.

(8)Prohibited conduct standard contracts are within Schedule 9; accordingly section 175 (restriction on giving landlord's notice during first four months of occupation) is not incorporated as a term of a prohibited conduct standard contract.
