Piper v Muggleton: CA 1956

For proceedings applying for a new tenancy under the Act, it is necessary that at every stage of those proceedings the person joined as ‘the landlord’ should in fact answer that description according to the statutory definition, and that if there is a change of interest by which one person ceases to be, and another becomes the landlord, then that other person becomes the ‘landlord’ for the purposes of all further steps.
