HC Deb 22 January 1996 vol 270 c82W
Mr. Allason

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if properties remain subject to assessment by the rent officer service where a tenant's consent has been obtained on form RR1. [10251]

Mr. Clappison

Schedule 11 to the Rent Act 1977 sets out the procedures for rent officers receiving applications for the registration of a rent.

If a landlord and tenant apply jointly on form RR1 for the registration of a rent, the rent officer may, after making any enquiry he thinks fit or asking for any information he requires, simply register the asking rent if he thinks it is a fair rent. If he does not think it is a fair rent, he may determine a fair rent.
