Crawford v Clarke: CA 23 Mar 2000

The tenants had carried out certain works, but had failed to complete them and were served with s146 notices requiring them to complete the works. The works were not completed and the property was forfeited. Relief against forfeiture was granted on condition that the tenant complied with schedules for the works. He failed and was granted relief and again failed. The judge awarded possession resulting in a windfall for the landlord. An appeal failed since the judge had exercised a discretion which was only rarely to be interfered with.
