Service charges and dispensation: an update

I’m led to believe that the landlord in Daejan Investments Ltd v Benson (our post here) has been given permission to appeal to the Supreme Court. Nothing confirmed on the UKSC website yet, but my source is usually quite reliable. I’m going to go out on a limb here and confidently predict that the landlord will lose, for the reasons given by the LVT, UT(LC) and CA.

J is a barrister. He considers housing law to be the single greatest kind of law known to humankind and finds it very odd that so few people share this view.

    Anyone who put money on J’s confident prediction (although does anyone bet on the outcome of appellate decisions?) will be feeling pretty sore. The Supreme Court has allowed Daejan’s appeal by a 3-2 majority. More to come soon.

      Simply amazing. Quite an incredible (and wrong!) result

    Did the majority in the Supreme Court have a different version of s.20 to the one I’ve used on westlaw? Talk about doing damage to the statutory provisions. They’ve just ignored them.
