This ebriefing considers the Government’s proposals for challenges, as set out in Chapter 7 of the Green Paper entitled 'Fast and fair challenges'.
From 6th April 2016 a new prescribed form must be used. So do make sure to use it next year (noting for many Registered Provider (RP) clients the only use will be where fixed service charges are used and these mean the “total” rent increases).
At first glance the form seems the same and indeed it is – the only changes are to the Guidance notes; updating a website address and correcting a couple of cross references. Nevertheless, it is the prescribed form so if you are in the position of increasing the total rent then don’t forget to use it.
The form (form 4) can be found within this legislation.
The Government do publish Word versions of the forms here.
