150   Time periods to be observed in giving termination notice on ground that tenant offered alternative social housing premises
(1)  A termination notice of a social housing tenancy agreement is not to be given to the tenant on the alternative premises ground before the later of the following:
(a)  the end of the 14-day period within which the tenant may apply for any review of the decision to give the termination notice,
(b)  the end of any such review carried out in respect of that decision.
(2)  However, if the landlord and tenant enter into a new social housing tenancy agreement before the end of that 14-day period or any such review, the termination notice may be given on or after the day on which they enter into the new agreement.
(3)  The termination notice must specify a termination date that is not earlier than 30 days after the day on which the notice is given, unless it specifies an earlier day to which the tenant has consented.
(4)  The termination notice is ineffective unless the alternative premises in connection with which the termination notice is given are available for occupation no later than 7 days before the termination date.
(5)  The termination notice may specify a termination date that is before the end of the fixed term of the social housing tenancy agreement if it is a fixed term agreement.
