Islington London Borough Council v Honeygan-Green (Honeygan): QBD 25 May 2007

The court considered whether the determination of a secure tenancy by the granting of a possession order, brings to an end an existing application which has established the right to buy at a particular time and at a particular price, or whether such an application is capable of being revived once the tenancy itself has been revived.
Held: Once the possession order had been granted, the tenant became a tolerated trespassser. Once she repaid the arrears, she became a secure tenant again, but she would then have to make a fresh application to purchase a long lease.
