Zafiris and Another v Liu: CA 27 Jan 2005

The defendant landlord rejected the claimant’s application for a new tenancy, saying that his own wife’s occupation of part of the premises for her business was sufficient to allow him to require possession.
Held: there was no authority for the proposition that a business of a landlord’s wife would be sufficient for this purpose. It was a matter for the trial judge to see whether as a matter of fact and degree the intended occupation was to count under the section.
