These Regulations amend the principal Regulations 1993 which set out the procedure to be followed in relation to applications for collective enfranchisement and lease renewal made under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993. The amendments are consequential to amendments made to sections 13 and 39 of the 1993 Act by section 120 and Schedule 14 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 (c. 15) abolishing the residence test: one of the qualifying rules for tenants making claims for collective enfranchisement and lease renewal which required the tenant to have occupied the flat as his only or principal home for the last twelve months or for periods amounting to three years in the last ten years. In respect of lease renewal, the test has been replaced with a requirement that the tenant has to have been a long leaseholder of the flat for two years.

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
