Notice

A notice purportedly served under s4 of Part 1 of the 1954 Act on an earlier tenant who had assigned to the current tenant was not valid. The reaction of the reasonable tenant upon receiving the notice would be to think that it was meant for another person.

The rent assessment committee has power to determine a rent higher than 25,000 under schedule 10 to the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 even though the tenancy would then cease to be assured.

R (on the application of Morris) v London Rent Assessment Committee [2002] EWCA Civ 276; [2002] 11 EG 155; [2002] 24 EG 149.
