Volume 712: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government when they intend to bring into force the whole of Section 152 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002. [HL4685]

Regulations are currently being drafted that will contain the detailed requirements for the service charge accounting information that landlords will be required to supply to tenants under Section 21 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985.

Section 152 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 made amendments to the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 by replacing the provisions contained in Section 21 of that Act. Schedule 12 to the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008 has made further amendments to the 1985 Act and in particular contains provisions that will replace the Section 21 provisions that were introduced by Section 152 of the 2002 Act.

Implementation of these provisions will follow after the regulations have been approved by both Houses of Parliament.
