Codes of practice
Section 87 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 makes provision for approved codes of practice that are "designed to promote desirable practices in relation to .. the management or residential property". The section provides that failure to comply with any provisions of an approved code of practice does not of itself render any person liable to any proceedings, but in any proceedings, the code of practice shall be admissible as evidence and "any provision of any such code which appears to the court or tribunal to be relevant to any question arising in the proceedings shall be taken into account in determining that question" (s87(7)(b)).
