Charles Terence Estates Ltd v Cornwall Council: CA 13 Nov 2012

The council had stopped paying rents on properties let by the claimants to the homeless, claiming first breaches of the leases. When later they were sued, they defendant by saying that since the properties had been let without the required statutory assessment of fair rents, the leases were void and no rents were due. The company now appealed against a finding which upheld that argument.
