Tolerated Trespasser day

It is official, orders signed and everything. As of today, 20 May 2009, Schedule 11 of the Housing & Regeneration Act is in force, save for paragraphs 3(3), 8(3) and 14(3), which we are arguing about below. Housing and Regeneration Act 2008 (Commencement No. 5) Order 2009. SI 2009/1261

Also in force today – The Housing (Replacement of Terminated Tenancies) (Successor Landlords) (England) Order 2009. SI 2009/1262

So, replacement tenancies all round, then.

[edit – now confirmed on the DCLG site.]

    Note also that in Wales the Housing (Replacement of Terminated Tenancies (Successor Landlords) (Wales) Order 2009 came into effect on 20th May 2009.

      Good point Sandie. I’d just noted the date was the same and forgot to put the Welsh order in.
