Reply To: More than 5 bedrooms


It’s Regulation 13D para 8 “Son of PTD”.

This new Regulation is one of my favourites – it requires an LA to apply to the Rent Officer when it has received notice from a prospective tenant that “he is contemplating occupying as his home a dwelling within the area of the relevant authority which contains a specified number of bedrooms, exceeding five.”

Note – He is contemplating renting more than 5 rooms, not that his size criteria actually requires them.
