Refusal to award fixed costs and contractual costs

Rule 27.14 has no place here. The only rule applicable is 44.5. This decision is not binding and no weight should be attached to it.
Sounds like Counsel didn't did a good job in my opinion. Having had conduct of over 200 hearings I've never had a case like this.... Read More

Does a Section 8 notice to quit end a tenancy?

The Joys of using a lawyer (I'm a lawyer)

A section 8 does not end a tenancy. The tenancy only ends when a possession order is made or the property is given up by the tenants.

When a possession order is given, if the tenants do not move out of the property, the order should also state that the tenants pay a daily rate of rent until they give up the property. If the Court order does not mention this then the lawyer who obtained the same has been negligent.

When enforcement of a CCJ fails?

Dear Peter

What is this way you talk about? I've got a CCJ against a debtor for around £7,000. I've already done a Third Party Debt Order and been successful to recover £500. Attachment of Earnings failed as she left her job. HCEO failed because they said they could not enter too. She is in rented accommodation.

I'm thinking about doing another TPDO this year... Read More
