Value of freeholder’s interestE+W

3(1)Subject to the provisions of this paragraph, the value of the freeholder’s interest in the specified premises is the amount which at [F5the relevant date] that interest might be expected to realise if sold on the open market by a willing seller (with [F6no person who falls within sub-paragraph (1A)] buying or seeking to buy) on the following assumptions—E+W

(a)on the assumption that the vendor is selling for an estate in fee simple—

(i)subject to any leases subject to which the freeholder’s interest in the premises is to be acquired by the nominee purchaser, but

(ii)subject also to any intermediate or other leasehold interests in the premises which are to be acquired by the nominee purchaser;

(b)on the assumption that this Chapter and Chapter II confer no right to acquire any interest in the specified premises or to acquire any new lease (except that this shall not preclude the taking into account of a notice given under section 42 with respect to a flat contained in the specified premises where it is given by a person other than a participating tenant);

(c)on the assumption that any increase in the value of any flat held by a participating tenant which is attributable to an improvement carried out at his own expense by the tenant or by any predecessor in title is to be disregarded; and

(d)on the assumption that (subject to paragraphs (a) and (b)) the vendor is selling with and subject to the rights and burdens with and subject to which the conveyance to the nominee purchaser of the freeholder’s interest is to be made, and in particular with and subject to such permanent or extended rights and burdens as are to be created in order to give effect to Schedule 7.

F7[(1A)A person falls within this sub-paragraph if he is—

(a)the nominee purchaser, or

(b)a tenant of premises contained in the specified premises, or

F8(ba)an owner of an interest which the nominee purchaser is to acquire in pursuance of section 1(2)(a), or]

(c)an owner of an interest which the nominee purchaser is to acquire in pursuance of section 2(1)(b).

(2)It is hereby declared that the fact that sub-paragraph (1) requires assumptions to be made as to the matters specified in paragraphs (a) to (d) of that sub-paragraph does not preclude the making of assumptions as to other matters where those assumptions are appropriate for determining the amount which at [F5the relevant date] the freeholder’s interest in the specified premises might be expected to realise if sold as mentioned in that sub-paragraph.

(3)In determining that amount there shall be made such deduction (if any) in respect of any defect in title as on a sale of the interest on the open market might be expected to be allowed between a willing seller and a willing buyer.

(4)Where a lease of any flat or other unit contained in the specified premises is to be granted to the freeholder in accordance with section 36 and Schedule 9, the value of his interest in those premises at [F5the relevant date] so far as relating to that flat or other unit shall be taken to be the difference as at that date between—

(a)the value of his freehold interest in it, and

(b)the value of his interest in it under that lease, assuming it to have been granted to him at that date;

and each of those values shall, so far as is appropriate, be determined in like manner as the value of the freeholder’s interest in the whole of the specified premises is determined for the purposes of paragraph 2(1)(a).

(5)The value of the freeholder’s interest in the specified premises shall not be increased by reason of—

(a)any transaction which—

(i)is entered into on or after the date of the passing of this Act (otherwise than in pursuance of a contract entered into before that date), and

(ii)involves the creation or transfer of an interest superior to (whether or not preceding) any interest held by a qualifying tenant of a flat contained in the specified premises; or

(b)any alteration on or after that date of the terms on which any such superior interest is held.

(6)Sub-paragraph (5) shall not have the effect of preventing an increase in value of the freeholder’s interest in the specified premises in a case where the increase is attributable to any such leasehold interest with a negative value as is mentioned in paragraph 14(2).

Freeholder’s share of marriage valueE+W

4(1)The marriage value is the amount referred to in sub-paragraph (2), and the freeholder’s share of the marriage value is [F950 per cent. of that amount].E+W

(2)[F10Subject to sub-paragraph (2A),] the marriage value is any increase in the aggregate value of the freehold and every intermediate leasehold interest in the specified premises, when regarded as being (in consequence of their being acquired by the nominee purchaser) interests under the control of the participating tenants, as compared with the aggregate value of those interests when held by the persons from whom they are to be so acquired, being an increase in value—

(a)which is attributable to the potential ability of the participating tenants, once those interests have been so acquired, to have new leases granted to them without payment of any premium and without restriction as to length of term, and

(b)which, if those interests were being sold to the nominee purchaser on the open market by willing sellers, the nominee purchaser would have to agree to share with the sellers in order to reach agreement as to price.

[F11(2A)Where at the relevant date the unexpired term of the lease held by any of those participating members exceeds eighty years, any increase in the value of the freehold or any intermediate leasehold interest in the specified premises which is attributable to his potential ability to have a new lease granted to him as mentioned in sub-paragraph (2)(a) is to be ignored.]

(3)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (2) the value of the freehold or any intermediate leasehold interest in the specified premises when held by the person from whom it is to be acquired by the nominee purchaser and its value when acquired by the nominee purchaser—

(a)shall be determined on the same basis as the value of the interest is determined for the purposes of paragraph 2(1)(a) or (as the case may be) paragraph 6(1)(b)(i); and

(b)shall be so determined as at [F5the relevant date].

(4)Accordingly, in so determining the value of an interest when acquired by the nominee purchaser—

(a)the same assumptions shall be made under paragraph 3(1) (or, as the case may be, under paragraph 3(1) as applied by paragraph 7(1)) as are to be made under that provision in determining the value of the interest when held by the person from whom it is to be acquired by the nominee purchaser; and

(b)any merger or other circumstances affecting the interest on its acquisition by the nominee purchaser shall be disregarded.
