Edwards v Kumarasamy

You may remember that a decision on this case last year left landlords in the position of potentially being liable for repairing common ways in properties of which they were leaseholders and furthermore that this obligation was on them even if they had not been informed of disrepair.
However a decision by the Supreme Court released last week upheld the appeal by the landlord against this decision. Effectively therefore landlords are in the same position as they were before this case with the standard repairing obligations that they have always had (in S11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985).
