Notes for later

As ever, housing cases come in a flood after a drought.

Jones v London Borough of Merton [2008] EWCA Civ 660 on when liability for mesne profits ends after the tolerated trespasser leaves a property.

Hanoman v London Borough of Southwark [2008] EWCA Civ 624 on when housing benefit counts as rent under RTB rules.

And C, R (on the application of) v London Borough of Lambeth [2008] EWHC 1230 (Admin) on housing duties under the Children Act.

I’ll get to as many of them as I can tonight and the rest tomorrow.
