Long Leases (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 43: Partially continuing leases: allocation of renewal premium

175.Where a renewal premium (as defined in section 37) is payable under a partially continuing lease, a landlord, for the purposes of claiming a compensatory payment or an additional payment for the loss of the renewal premium, must first allocate the premium between the converted subjects and the continuing subjects.

176.Subsection (3) provides that if the renewal premium payable under the lease is a cumulo renewal premium, as defined in section 38, the landlord must allocate the cumulo renewal premium between the relevant leases, as outlined in section 42, before carrying out the allocation under this section.

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

178.The allocation must be in such proportions as are reasonable in the circumstances (subsection (4)). Subsection (5) creates a presumption that an allocation of a premium is reasonable if it follows an allocation of rent under section 41.

179.Under subsection (6), the sum allocated to the continuing part of the lease is the renewal premium payable under the lease from the appointed day.
