Hammersmith and Fulham London Borough Council v Hill: CA 25 Apr 1994

A possession warrant issued under a secure tenancy of a dwelling-house may not be set aside after its execution, unless the possession order itself was set aside for example as having been obtained by fraud. If a possession order has been made, there was no need to notify the tenant that the warrant was issued on a further breach.
