  • Volumes 1 & 2, published 1988 (Sold Seperately)
  • Volume 3 published 1989
  • 3rd Cumulative Supplement (Updating all 3 Volumes) published 1993 (Sold Seperately)

Volume 3 of The Rent Acts contains a full-scale treatment of the new Assured Tenancies under the Housing Act 1988. It is uniform in style with Volumes 1 and 2, and, like them, it provides a lucid and well laid out account of the legislation, with its many difficult and interlocking provisions.

Part I of the Housing Act 1988 is comparatively short yet its provisions for assured tenancies are both complex and very different from the terms of the Rent Act. There are some features in common, but in most respects the two systems are entirely distinct.

Details from the 3rd Cumulative Supplement:-

  • Volumes 1 and 2 of The Rent Acts (Sold Seperately),which cover the Rent Acts proper, are up to date to August 1, 1988; Volume 3 (sold seperately) on Assured Tenancies under the Housing Act 1988 is up to date to October 1, 1989.
  • This edition of the Supplement brings all three volumes up to date to January 1, 1993, but it has been possible to include some material reported or published after that date.
  • Although there have been few significant changes since publication of the 2nd Supplement to the statutory provisions applicable to the Rent Acts, the flow of judicial decisions has continued unabated, both on the Rent Acts proper and on the Housing Act 1988.
  • The jurisdictional changes made by Courts and Legal Services Act 1990 and the High Court and County Courts Jurisdiction Order 1991 are fully considered (Supplement, pp. 5-6).
  • The Supplement falls into four parts. Parts 1, 2 and 3 annotate Volumes 1,2 and 3 respectively, and Part 4 is an appendix of new statutes and statutory instruments. In view of the increasing size of the Supplement, full tables an index have been added to this edition
