Schröder v Finanzamt Hameln – WLR Daily

Schröder v Finanzamt Hameln (Case C-450/09); [2011] WLR (D) 121

“National legislation which allowed a resident taxpayer to deduct the annuities paid to a relative who had transferred immovable property to him, from the rental income derived from that property, but did not grant such a deduction to a non-resident taxpayer, was contrary to article 63FEU of the FEU Treaty in so far as the undertaking to pay those annuities resulted from the transfer of that property.”

Hughes v Borodex Ltd – WLR Daily

Hughes v Borodex Ltd [2010] EWCA Civ 425; [2010] WLR (D) 106

“A tenant who had made extensive improvements at her own expense to the flat which she held on a long residential tenancy was not entitled to have those improvements disregarded by a Rent Assessment Committee fixing the rent of the new assured periodic tenancy of the same premises. On the proper interpretation of Sch 10 to the Local Government and Housing Act 1989, the improvements fell to be taken into account even though the effect was that the new rent as assessed exceeded the statutory maximum for protection as an assured tenant, the tenant lost her protection and the landlord became entitled to serve a notice to quit.”

Octagon Assets Ltd v Remblance and Another – Times Law Reports

Octagon Assets Ltd v Remblance and Another

Court of Appeal

“Where rent arrears were sought from both a corporate tenant and a guarantor it was ostensibly unjust to decline to set aside a statutory demand obtained against the guarantor mrerly because he could afford to pay the debt; if a statutory demand would not be sustained against the principal debtor it was also unjust to treat the guarantor differently.”

Octagon v Remblance and another – WLR Daily

Octagon v Remblance and another [2009] EWCA Civ 581; [2009] WLR (D) 196

“In a case in which a corporate tenant and a guarantor were pursued for rent arrears, it was difficult to see how it could be just not to set aside a statutory demand obtained against the guarantor where the principal debtor satisfied one of the conditions in r 6.5(4)(a) of the Insolvency Rules 1986, merely because the guarantor could afford to pay the debt. Moreover, where the tenant’s and guarantor’s liability were co-extensive and there were no good reasons for distinguishing between the position of the guarantor and that which would obtain if the tenant applied under r 6.5(4)(a) to set aside a statutory demand, justice and r 6.5(4)(d) of the 1986 Rules demanded that a statutory demand obtained against the guarantor should be set aside.”

“Rent officers, in identifying the ‘locality’ under Sch 1, Pt I to the Rent Officers (Housing Benefit Functions) Order 1997, as amended, needed to assemble only enough ‘neighbourhoods’ to satisfy the requirements of para 4(6)(c). ‘A broad geographical area’ was misleading. ‘Neighbourhood’ was similarly not to be interpreted as comprising too large an area. The rent officer’s inquiry was restricted to the ‘facilities and services’ specified in para 4(6)(b).”
