    Edwards V Kumarasamy – Supreme Court Decision

    Earlier this morning, the Supreme Court overturned a Court of Appeal decision that decided a landlord was liable to compensate his tenant for injuries caused by tripping over a communal paving stone in disrepair taking into account Section 11 (1a) of the Landlord and  Tenant Act 1985.   The Supreme Court overturned the decision on the point that the communal paving stone did not form part of the “exterior of the property”. they also decided that even if the path had been part of the exterior for section 11 to be invoked, the landlord was required to receive notice of such disrepair.  We are currently digesting the full transcript of the decision and will release a more detailed response in the coming days.

    The Brexit Effect

    The vote to leave the EU will have very little effect, if any, on English and Welsh Housing Law as these are enshrined in the relevant countries own laws.  One area where there may be some more volatility is consumer protection i.e. between landlord and agent, as these are borne out of EU directives.  Obviously until Article 50 is invoked and we have some idea of the discussion taking place between the UK and the EU, the status quo still remains.
