Course Overview

This bite-size webinar provides an invaluable overview of Whitehall Court London Limited v The Crown Estate Commissioners (CEC) [2018], in which the Court of Appeal upheld the Upper Tribunal’s decision and found in favour of the CEC.

Whilst the scope of the assumption at paragraph 3(2)(b) of Schedule 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 has been raised in other cases, Whitehall Court London Limited v The Crown Estate Commissioners [2018] is the first reported case offering clarity that the assumption extends to the entire building – not just the tenant’s flat. To this end, the Court of Appeal’s judgment ensures that the rights of other qualifying tenants do no depress the value of the landlord’s interest.

Delivered by barrister Rachel Coyle of the 36 Group, this webinar is essential for anyone involved in leasehold and enfranchisement work.

In addition, this course will further explain the high-profile case of Mundy v Sloane Stanley Estate Trustees [2018], a long-running legal battle to slash leasehold costs, which threw the property industry’s calculation basis for extending a property’s lease into question.
