1168. Meaning of 'house' for the purposes of Part I of the Leasehold Reform Act 1967.

'House' includes1 any building designed or adapted for living in2 and reasonably so called, notwithstanding that the building is not structurally detached, or was or is not solely designed or adapted3 for living in, or is divided horizontally into flats or maisonettes4. Where a building is divided horizontally, the flats or other units into which it is so divided are not separate 'houses', though the building as a whole may be5; and where a building is divided vertically, the building as a whole is not a 'house', though any of the units into which it is divided may be6.
