Deletion from register of a tenancy.

141

141.—(1) Where, in the opinion of the landlord of the dwelling, a dwelling in respect of which a tenancy has been registered in the register has ceased to be a dwelling to which this Act applies, the landlord shall notify in writing the Board of that opinion and the grounds for it.

(2) That notification shall be made within 1 month from the date that, in the opinion of the landlord, the cessation concerned occurred.

(3) Having considered the grounds stated in a notification made to it under subsection (1), the Board shall—

( a) if it is satisfied that the dwelling concerned is no longer a dwelling to which this Act applies, delete the entry in the register in respect of the dwelling and notify the landlord of that deletion, or

( b) if it is not satisfied that the dwelling is no longer a dwelling to which this Act applies, notify the landlord that it is not so satisfied.

(4) For the avoidance of doubt, no refund of the whole or part of the fee charged under section 134 in respect of the registration under this Part of the dwelling concerned may be made to the landlord in a case to which subsection (3)(a) applies.

(5) Despite the deletion, under subsection (3)(a), of the entry in the register in respect of a tenancy of a dwelling, the Board may, if it considers it appropriate to do so for the purpose of its functions under section 151 , keep a record of all or any of the particulars in respect of that tenancy that were contained in the entry.
