Long Leases (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 42: Allocation of cumulo renewal premium

171.Where a cumulo renewal premium (as defined in section 38) is payable under more than one lease, a landlord, for the purposes of claiming a compensatory payment or an additional payment for the loss of the renewal premium, has first to allocate the premium.

172.If the premium allocated is more than £100, compensation can only be claimed under section 51(1)(d) as an additional payment.

173.The allocation must be in such proportions as are reasonable in the circumstances (subsection (3)). Subsection (4) creates a presumption that an allocation of a premium is reasonable if it accords with an apportionment effective immediately before the appointed day or, if there is no such apportionment, it follows any allocation of cumulo rent made under section 40.

174.Under subsection (5), the renewal premium allocated to a lease that continues after the appointed day is the renewal premium payable under that lease from the appointed day, subject to any allocation under section 43 in relation to partially continuing leases.
