New Clause. — (Recovery of Possession of House Acquired for Retirement.)

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 29th June 1965.

Alert me about debates like this

(1) Where a person who has acquired a dwelling-house for his residence in anticipation of his retirement (in this section referred to as the owner) has thereafter let the dwelling-house on a regulated tenancy and the conditions mentioned in subsection (2) of this section are satisfied, then if—

  1. (a) apart from the Rent Acts the landlord would be entitled to recover possession of the dwelling-house; and
  2. (b) the court is satisfied that the dwelling-house is required as a residence for the owner and that the owner has retired;

the court shall make an order for possession of the dwelling-house whether or not it would have the power to do so under section 3 of the Act of 1933.

(2) The said conditions are—

  1. (a) that not later than the commencement of the tenancy (or if the tenancy was created before the commencement of this Act, not later than six months after the commencement of this Act) the landlord has given notice in writing to the tenant that possession may be recovered under this section; and
  2. (b) that the dwelling-house has not since the commencement of this Act been let on a regulated tenancy with respect to which the condition mentioned in paragraph (a) of this subsection was not satisfied.

(3) For the purposes of this section the definition of retirement shall be that the person complies with the conditions laid down in section 20(2)(a) of the National Insurance Act 1946.—[Mr. Boyd-Carpenter.]
