Housing Litigation Update - Winter 2018/19


Share

Welcome to the Winter 2018/19 edition of Housing Litigation Update.

We start by looking at the impact the Equality Act 2010 has on the suspension of warrant for eviction, before considering a High Court decision in a case involving anti-social behaviour and the mental health issues of the tenants.

We then move on to look at the wide scope a trial judge has when trying a case on discretionary grounds.

We then look at an interesting decision involving a licensee and the use of McKenzie friends before considering a case involving the termination of fixed term tenancies within the starter tenancy period.

Clear drafting in tenancy agreements, especially when it comes to access clauses, is our next focus of attention before ending with a round-up of a few issues which are worthy of note.

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 hlu@trowers.com with any comments.
