A couple of interesting permission to appeal hearings have appeared on Bailii. Permission granted in both cases for Court of Appeal hearing.
Lee v Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council  EWCA Civ 523 concerns whether a Local Authority should have considered the acquisition of a plot for a caravan in the context of a review of an offer of ‘suitable’ accommodation following assumption of housing duty to a homeless Romany Gypsy.
City of Westminster v Man  EWCA Civ 532 arose out of a claim for unpaid service charges. It concerns whether a Tomlin Order, staying the proceedings, means that an earlier order for costs in the proceedings, not mentioned in the Tomlin Schedule, is unenforceable due to the stay. Not necessarily of interest to many housing people, but we use Tomlins a lot in disrepair and nuisance claims, so this is worth keeping an eye on.
