On the tenant's appeal against a Rent Assessment Committee's assessment of the rent for her assured periodic tenancy,
... the Court held that the Committee had not erred in taking account of the rent which might be achieved in respect of comparable premises let under an assured shorthold tenancy. Nothing in section 14 of the 1988 Act compelled that conclusion as the section contains provisions which must be applied when the Committee seeks to determine the rent at which premises might reasonably be expected to be let in the open market under an assured periodic tenancy. This did not preclude a Committee from taking account of any material which the Committee considers relevant to making its assessment in accordance with the section.
