Practice and Procedure

R v H (2008)

PUBLISHED February 13, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 483

Although the occupiers of shared accommodation where the landlord was resident could not have, as their written agreement purported, an assured shorthold tenancy, the agreement nevertheless created a contract, and they were thus residential occupiers entitled to the protection of the Protection from Eviction Act 1977.
