HC Deb 16 July 1979 vol 970 c380W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on rental purchase agreements.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

Genuine rental purchase agreements provide people with a means of buying property by instalments. We are aware that bogus agreements have been used in attempts to evade the Rent Acts and in such cases the appropriate remedy is through the courts.
