Following 5 1/2 years we have a Judgement which entirely exonerates the landlord, Mrs Judith Wilson, who was accused of 1) Harassment 2) Unlawful Eviction and 3) Disrepair. This is a very important judgement and the transcript is to be published on the Internet for the benefit of all landlords.
It is so easy to make an array of allegations but the truth is a different matter. Everything including the kitchen sink was thrown at the landlord, but the result was that the Landlord had done nothing wrong.
Landlords should note the wording “The Counterclaim against the Claimant was Entirely Without Merit”.
It will be about four weeks before a transcript is available and published. I suggest it will become very important as the Judge pointed out the precision with which the claim (or in this case counterclaim of £10,000) has to be set out.
It was very much a case of Rudyard Kipling’s sic helpers Who? What, Where, When, Why, How?
