The Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993, Chapter II (LRHUDA 1993) governs the procedure for exercising the right to acquire a new lease. Section 39(3) defines what a qualifying tenant is by reference to section 5 (excluding ss
(5) and (6)) and section 7.
Section 5 of LRHUDA 1993 was amended by the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, s 117 (1), Sch 14. Before 26 July 2002 in relation to England and 1 January 2003 in relation to Wales, a qualifying tenant also had to satisfy a residence condition,
ie he must have occupied the flat as his only or principal home for the previous 12 months or for periods amounting to three years in the previous ten years, whether or not he had used the flat for other purposes: see s 6 (repealed). Thus a qualifying
tenant had to be an individual and not a company; the repeal of s 6 has removed that restriction.
