Stevens and Cutting Ltd v Anderson: CA 1990

The tenant served his s26 notice on the landlord and then began his application to the court. His application was however early.
Held: The landlord did nothing to indicate his opposition or otherwise to a new tenancy and so was not estopped from objecting to the fault. There was a prima facie presumption that a solicitor knew the law but one that could be rebutted.
