The Law Lords are considering whether to give leave for an appeal in a tenancy dispute which could have significant implications for divorced couples. The case centres on moves by a housing trust to regain possession of property in north London from a divorced man. He and his wife used to share the property under a tenancy granted to the wife. However, when they divorced, the wife moved out but the husband remained in occupation. Then the landlord, the Newlon Housing Trust, sought possession. In June last year Judge Tibber, sitting at Edmonton County Court, rejected moves by the man to have the case adjourned and granted possession to the trust. But in January this year the Court of Appeal set this judgment aside. The housing trust is now seeking leave to appeal to the House of Lords.
