Schedule 4 – New Schedule 9C to the 2016 Act

62.New Schedule 9C lists those fixed term standard contracts that can contain a landlord’s break clause whether or not they are made for a term of two years or more.

The contract descriptions include: a supported standard contract (in relation to supported accommodation - see section 143 of the 2016 Act); temporary accommodation for homeless persons; and service occupancies (where the contract-holder is required to occupy the dwelling under his or her contract of employment).

63.Schedule 9C may be amended by regulations by virtue of paragraph 11 of that Schedule. Any regulations made under that paragraph are subject to the affirmative resolution procedure (see the amendment to section 256 of the 2016 Act in Schedule 6 to the Act).
