Barber v Croydon London Borough Council – WLR Daily

Barber v Croydon London Borough Council – WLR Daily [2010] EWCA Civ 51; [2010] WLR (D) 39

“A local housing authority had acted unreasonably in seeking possession against a mentally impaired tenant for anti-social behaviour when it failed to take into account the possibility that the tenant’s mental impairment might have given rise to his behaviour. However, the fact that the tenant had successfully advanced a public law defence in a private law action meant that the council would not be preventing from bringing a fresh possession action if on reconsideration it felt it was merited.”
