Housing Litigation Update - Autumn 2017
Welcome to the autumn 2017 edition of Housing Litigation Update.
Subletting continues to be a hot topic and so we begin this edition by looking at a recent case on this issue which was appealed to the High Court.
We move on to look at the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 and the circumstances in which temporary accommodation is occupied as a dwelling for the purposes of this piece of legislation.
As autumn and winter is generally the time that landlords see an increase in complaints about disrepair we have an informative question and answer piece on the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
We then move on to revisit the enforcement of possession orders via the High Court. This is followed by consideration of some helpful guidance handed down by the Court of Appeal about which address for a tenant should be quoted on a notice to quit.
So often there are difficulties personally serving injunction orders so we then look at the service of such orders by alternative methods. We end this edition with a look at the review process where possession is fought on the mandatory anti-social behaviour ground.
We hope that you find this edition of interest and value. We always welcome any feedback and suggestions for future articles so please feel free to email us at hlu@trowers. com with any comments.
