February 2015

Welcome to the February edition of The Round-Up.

This month Helen Turnbull focuses on commercial lease renewals and clarification provided by the Court of Appeal in Hough v Greathall Limited as to the meaning of “is opposed” under s.25 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.

Sometimes a trip to the County Court produces a quirky outcome.  Philippa Seal shares with readers her experiences in one of her recent cases: Reeves v Sandhu.

Richard Colbey provides a procedural overview of the English court’s jurisdiction to order depositions for use in foreign proceedings.

Finally, Elizabeth Dwomoh discusses the recent case of R (on the application of Turley) v Wandsworth London Borough, a case dealing with the succession rights of an unmarried surviving partner under s.87 of the Housing Act 1985 (unamended).
