(4) Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) Ordinance
 
(1) Part IV
   
  This part applies to almost all domestic tenancies and sub-tenancies except those which are granted in respect of pre-war buildings. Since 9 July 2004, a tenant of a property under Part IV no longer enjoys security of tenure. A landlord and a tenant may terminate the tenancy in accordance with its terms.
   
(2) Form CR 109
   
  This is a "Notice of New Letting or Renewal Agreement" and specifies, amongst other things, the following matters:
   
 
(a)

Address of the property;

   
(b) Date of the new tenancy or renewal of tenancy;
   
(c) Term of the tenancy;
   
(d) Monthly rental; and
   
(e) Amount of rates and management fees and the party responsible for the same.
   
  This form has to be lodged with the Commissioner of Rating and Valuation within one month of signing a newly created tenancy or entering into a renewal of a tenancy. There is a penalty of $310 for delay in lodging this form. Failure to lodge this form with the Commissioner will prevent the landlord from recovering from the tenant the rental specified therein.
