Barrett Homes has won the right to challenge a decision by Bexley Justices giving the green light for it to be prosecuted for making allegedly false and misleading statements over a property price list. Barretts claim the summons on 19 June 1998 was laid over a year after the discovery of the alleged offence. It claims the Trading Standards Officers had all the necessary information to issue a summons by 19 June 1997, a year within the time limit for issue of proceedings.
