“In the Housing and Planning Act 2016, omit Part 3 (recovering abandoned premises under assured shorthold tenancies).”—

This new clause repeals Part 3 of the Housing and Planning Act 2016. That Part provides for the recovery without a court order of premises let under an assured shorthold tenancy, where the premises have been abandoned. It has never been brought into force. The new clause is expected to be inserted into Chapter 3 of Part 1 of the Bill, after clause 22, and the title of Chapter 3 is expected to become “Miscellaneous”.

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
