Housing (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2010

Section 16: Refusal by district council to issue certificate of fitness for human habitation

Section 16 amends Article 36(5)(a) of the Private Tenancies (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 to make it clear that the purpose of a “notice of refusal” is to inform a landlord of a district council’s refusal to issue a certificate of fitness and the reasons for refusal. This corrects a drafting error in the 2006 Order.
