Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
When a new Act of Parliament comes in it will either repeal the whole of the previous Act or Sections if it.
The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 does not supercede the 1954 Act as such
The footnotes to the 1985 Act state "An Act to consolidate certain provisions of the law of landlord and tenant formerly found in the Housing Acts, together with the Landlord and Tenant Act 1962, with amendments to give effect to recommendations of the Law Commission."
The 1985 Act does take precedence but it modifies parts of the 1954 Act.
So it adds or amends the 1954 Act.
For example Section 13(3) of the 1985 Act modifies Part II of the 19654 Act.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Hi I cannot comment on service until I receive the answers to my first request.
Can you not see my response above?
There was another questioned asked previous to the one you answered which I am still waiting for a response.
Hmmm - I can't see that on here, might I trouble you to repost it?
Are commercial property managing agents acting on behalf of the landlord exempt from Sect 28 LTA with regards ***** ***** year-end service charge accounts.
Thank you. I see what the issue is.
You have posted that as a different question on a new thread so that will be answered by another expert.
You can view this question at:
I have been charged with answering this question which read "Does the LTA 1985 SUPERCEDE 1954 ACT"
Therefore if you go back to your other question an expert may have answered that one already.
But in terms of this particular question thread can I clarify anything for you please?
It states "awaiting expert answer"
I see. However once we have finished here and you have rated, I can certainly go and take a look at it and see if it is something I can help with.
I rate your answer excellent.
