Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order prescribes the appropriate multiplier to be used in calculating the amount of compensation to which a tenant may be entitled, under Part II of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, where an order for a new tenancy is precluded on certain grounds. The amount of compensation is arrived at bymultiplying the rateable value of the holding (as determined for the purposes of section 37(2) of the 1954 Act) or twice that rateable value, as the case may be, by the appropriate multiplier. The Order is consequential on the discontinuance of domestic rating and the re-rating of non-domestic property under the Local Government Finance Act 1988 (c. 41)

The Order prescribes a multiplier of 3 where the date which is relevant for determining the rateable value of the holding for calculating the compensation is before the 1st April 1990 (and, if the tenant has opted under paragraph 4 of Schedule 7 to the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 for compensation to be based on the rateable value of the holding on 31st March 1990 where the date which would otherwise have been relevant is before the 1st April 1990). This is the same multiplier as that prescribed by S.I. 1984/1932 (which is revoked by this Order). Where the date for determining the rateable value is on or after 1st April 1990 (or would be but for the tenant having opted for the 31st March 1990 under paragraph 4), the Order prescribes a multiplier of 1, except in the transitional case where the tenant has exercised the option under paragraph 4 of Schedule 7. In the transitional case the multiplier is 8.
