Delays to services…

Apologies, I know updates have been slow in the last few weeks – I have been very busy on a lot of time sensitive stuff and what down time I’ve had, has really been needed as, well, down time… But the blog has not been forgotten or abandoned, honest.

There will be posts coming on all of the following, if you can contain your excitement in the meantime. Anything else coming up in the interim will be added to the pile.

Croydon London Borough Council v Kalonga (2022) UKSC 7 on ending fixed term secure tenancies during the term

Clarion Housing Association Ltd v Carter (2021) EWHC 2890 (QB) on contractual succession clauses and assured tenancies.

Parker, R (On the Application Of) v Bashir & Anor (2022) EWHC 358 (Admin) on costs in Environmental Protection Act prosecutions.

Axnoller Events Ltd v Brake & Anor (2022) EWHC 365 (Ch) and Brake & Ors v The Chedington Court Estate Ltd (2022) EWHC 366 (Ch) (and subsequent decisions) on the conclusion of the possession and evictions claims in the epic Brake litigation.

Brett v Harlow Court Ltd (LANDLORD AND TENANT – SERVICE CHARGES – on account service charges ) (2022) UKUT 52 (LC) on set off of over paid service charges against interim demands.

Aytan & Ors v Moore & Ors (HOUSING – RENT REPAYMENT ORDER) (2022) UKUT 27 (LC) on assessing rent repayment order awards.

Stampfer v Avon Ground Rents Ltd (LANDLORD AND TENANT – ADMINISTRATION CHARGE – charge for collecting rent) (2022) UKUT 68 (LC) on charging for collecting ground rents.

And a very belated note on Fairhurst v Woodward on harassment, nuisance and breach of Data Protection Act through use of security cameras and lights.

    The Fairhurst case is very useful to us right now. We are in a protracted dispute with a landlord installing CCTV in an HMO and not for the first time. We have been relying on ICO regs so far but this offers an extra angle
