Section 12 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1958 provided that distress for rent was abolished on13 August 1948.
Section 12 has been repealed.
The purpose of s.12 was not to abolish distress for rent but to make it clear that distress for rent had been abolished.
Practitioners should be aware that the repeal of s.12 does not revive a landlord’s right to engage in distress for rent.
