Osbornes applying to Supreme Court in housing possession case

Solicitors in London

News article published on: 22nd December 2020

In the case of Gateway Housing Association –v- Begum (2) the Court of Appeal recently decided that a tenant must leave the property even though there was confusion as to when the notice to quit was served.

Osbornes successfully represented the tenant in the lower court when the judge decided that the possession claim was invalid due to the lack of clarity, however the Claimant appealed this decision and won in the in the Court of Appeal.

Osbornes continue to represent the tenant and are working towards making an application to the Supreme Court for permission to appeal this decision.

This case has significant wider importance because it affects all notices affecting land where the tenant has died and therefore this appeal has exceptionally broad importance.
