Hautford v Rotrust Nominees
Thursday 23 March 2017
A decision of the County Court in which the Judge distinguished two Court of Appeal cases. He held that a landlord was unreasonable not to consent to its tenant making a planning application to change the use of the premises to residential use, on the grounds that the tenant might more easily enfranchise in the future. The landlord is appealing and the Court of Appeal will hear the appeal in November 2017.
Tiffany Scott acted on behalf of the claimant.
