Regina (Haysport Properties Ltd) v Rent Officer for West Sussex Registration Area: CA 26 Apr 2001

Repairs which had the effect of changing a house into one fit for human habitation were to be included as changes to the ‘condition of the dwelling house’. This being so the landlord was entitled to apply again to the rent officer for a new fair rent to be registered even though it was less than two years since the prior registration. The state of repair had been taken account of in fixing the fair rent.
