Our original intention was to make an Order by May 2004 bringing into force the remaining provisions of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002. These provisions include those relating to property insurance for leasehold houses, accounting and forfeiture. However, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister needs to consult on the accounting provisions that form part of this Order, allowing a three-month consultation period. We now anticipate the Order being made in November 2004.
