London and Quadrant Housing Trust v Ansell: CA 19 Apr 2007

The landlord had obtained an order for possession based upon the secure tenant’s failure to pay rent. The order had been suspended. The tenant again fell into arrears, and the landlord chose to issue new proceedings rather than revive the old.
Held: The landlord had that choice. The original order had ceased to be enforceable, and the landlord would not have been able to seek possession under it since 2004. The claim was as freeholder; the secure tenancy was not capable of being revived, and no other tenancy had arisen by virtue of the conduct of the parties.
