991. Terms as to initial repairs.

The landlord1 and the tenant2 may agree3, or the court4 may determine, that the terms of the statutory tenancy are to include a term that specified repairs5 ('initial repairs') be carried out6. The landlord's notice proposing a statutory tenancy7 must contain proposals as to what initial repairs, if any, are to be done and who is to do them8.

Where it falls to the court to determine what initial repairs, if any, should be carried out by the landlord, the court may not, except with the consent of the landlord and the tenant, require the carrying out of initial repairs
