Successful Defence of Application for Injunctive Relief

Case Study

What happened: The Landlord of a property containing a number of units let on an individual basis required possession of the property in order to undertake significant remedial works. The landlord served notice on the tenants, one of which, without any prior warning or communication, issued an application for injunctive relief to stop the Landlord obtaining possession. The tenant in question was in rent arrears and the Landlord was therefore at liberty to forfeit the lease in any event.

Outcome: We successfully defended the application and recovered the Landlord’s costs of the application.
