Transfers of Public Sector Housing Estates

Abbreviations and definitions used:
In this guide:
LRA 2002 means the Land Registration Act 2002
LRR 2003 means the Land Registration Rules 2003
initial vendors means local authorities and housing action trusts
house includes a flat
housing estate means a group of two or more houses
CRE means a Land Registry Computerised Register Entry

Relevant legislation:
The assistance given in this guide assumes the reader has access to the relevant legislation.  This is largely contained in:
- the Housing Act 1985, as amended
- the Housing Act 1988
- the Housing (Preservation of Right to Buy) Regulations 1993
- the Housing Act 1996


Subjects covered:
The guide covers:
- the voluntary sale of housing estates by housing authorities and other local authorities (such as Bury, Manchester, Salford, Stockport and Trafford), including county, county borough, district or London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London or the Council of the Isles of Scilly, the Broads Authority, a joint authority established by Part IV of the Local Government Act 1985, the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority, a police authority established under section3 of the Police Act 1996 and National Parks authorities.
- their acquisition and disposal by housing action trusts
- the impact of the preserved right to buy

It will thus be of interest to Property Lawyers and Conveyancing Solicitors acting for local authorities and for social landlords and other bodies acquiring public housing estates.

This guide is set out broadly in the chronological order of a proposed transaction.  That is to say it deals with the questions that each party will have to resolve during each step of the disposal.  There is one exception to this and that is the subject of consents to the various transactions by the Secretary of State or National Assembly for Wales.  


Further Information:
Please contact us for further information on:
- the voluntary sale of housing estates by urban development corporations (which do not require the Secretary of State's consent), and
- sales of individual houses and flats under the compulsory right to buy provisions, and the voluntary sales provisions of the Housing Act 1985 and under the Housing (Extension of Right to Buy) Order 1993.

 

Forms:
The following forms are used by Property Lawyers and Conveyancing Solicitors acting for Local Authorities (such as Bury, Manchester, Salford, Stockport and Trafford)

- PSD 13 - Certificate of Title to a House (For use on a conveyance of the freehold to a qualifying person under the preserved right to buy);

- PSD 14 - Certificate of Title to a Flat (for use on the grant of a Lease to a qualifying person under the preserved right to buy where the Landlord owns the freehold)

- PSDE 15 - Certificate of Title to a House or Flat (for use on the grant of a Lease to a qualifying person under the preserved right to buy where the Landlord does not own the freehold)

- PSD 17 - Certificate of Title on disposal of Housing Land or Buildings;

- PSD 101 - Application by a Private Sector Landlord or a connected Company in respect of a preserved right to buy;

- PSD 103 - Certificate of a Private Sector Landlord that Land is not subject to any rights of a qualifying person in respect of a preserved right to buy.


Consultation with the Land Registry:
In view of the value and the potential complexity of all the transactions the Property Lawyers and Conveyancing Solicitors for the parties to a potential transfer often consult with the Land Registry personally.  The Land Registry will often offer assistance at all stages of the transaction in order to understand the clients requirements.
