EXPLANATORY NOTE(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations revoke the Landlord and Tenant (Notices) Regulations 1957 (“the 1957 Regulations”) and the Landlord and Tenant (Notices) Regulations 1967 in England.
The 1957 Regulations contain various prescribed forms relating to the security of tenure provisions for residential tenancies under Part 1 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 (c.56) . Forms 1, 2 and 4 are redundant because the tenancies to which they relate have all been terminated. Equivalents to Form 3 (notice requiring a tenant or sub-tenant of residential property to give information about sub-tenancies) , Form 5 (notice by competent landlord requiring consent of other landlords to notice under section 4(1) ) and Form 6 (notice by competent landlord requiring consent of other landlord to agreement under Part 1) are now contained in the Long Residential Tenancies (Supplemental Forms) Regulations 1997. The 1957 Regulations are therefore redundant.
The Landlord and Tenant (Notices) Regulations 1967 simply made amendments to the forms contained within the 1957 Regulations and are also therefore redundant.
A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sector is foreseen.
