A big week for housing law next week. The House of Lords is hearing Knowsley Housing Trust v White  EWCA Civ 404 (tolerated trespassers and assured tenancies in the context of a preserved Right to Buy) Porter v Shepherds Bush Housing Association  EWCA Civ 196 (do assured tenancies give rise to tolerated trespassers at all) and Honeygan-Green v LB Islington  EWCA Civ 363 (the revival of the Right to Buy with the revivial of a secure tenancy and the relevance of previous steps in the RTB process).
However, despite granting permission to appeal in the case of London & Quadrant Housing Trust v Ansel  EWCA Civ 326, we are reliably informed that the case has settled and now won’t be dealt with.
So – having created the nonsense of tolerated trespassers in LB Brent v Burrows  1 WLR 1148, lets see if their Lordships can finally sort it out. Just in time for most tolerated trespassers to be abolished and have their tenncies restored by Sch. 11, Housing and Regeneration Act 2008.
