A nightmare for social landlords and their tenants?

Jonathan Manning and Sarah Salmon both barristers at Arden Chambers consider in depth the recent Court of Appeal decision in the case of Cardiff CC v Lee (Flowers) with Bethan Gladwyn, Senior Associate and Head of Housing Management and Rebecca Rees, Senior Associate, both at Hugh James Solicitors.

 The article focusses on the concession by Cardiff CC that a landlord does need permission to enforce a suspended possession order under CPR r.83.2(e). The authors discuss whether it was arguable that r.83.2(e) did not apply and what this element of the decision may mean for social landlords and their tenants going forward. Jonathan Manning is part of the panel for the “Question Time” session at SHLA’s 11th Annual Conference on 11 November 2016.
