Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)
These Regulations prescribe the forms of notices to be used under the Business Tenancies (Northern Ireland) Order 1996 (S.I. 1996/725 (N.I. 5)) (“the Order”). They also revoke the Business Tenancies (Notices) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1964 (S.R. & O. (N.I.) 1964 No. 215) (the “previous Regulations”) which prescribed the forms of notices to be used under the Business Tenancies Act (Northern Ireland) 1964 (1964 c. 36 (N.I.)) (“the Act of 1964”). That Act is repealed by the Order.
The main changes from the previous Regulations under the Act of 1964 are in Form 3 (landlord’s notice to determine a business tenancy under Article 6 of the Order) and Form 4 (tenant’s request for a new tenancy under Article 7 of the Order): these reflect the new provisions, particularly Articles 6 and 7 of the Order. Form 5 (notice of particulars) reflects the increased width of the power to obtain particulars in Article 29 of the Order.
