February 2011

This first issue of the new year is filled with cautionary tales as we consider the new duties imposed on landlords and managers of premises to let under the new Equality Act 2010,  and discuss the resurgence of proprietary estoppel as a means of overriding an express declaration of trust.

Also highlighted is the potential exposure to indemnity costs for the claimant who grossly exaggerates his or her claim.

Finally, we discuss the applicable criteria under the CPR for setting aside a possession order after a tenant’s failure to attend the original hearing.
