Rent dispute reaches the Lords

The Law Lords have granted leave for an appeal by the London Assessment Committee. Curtis v Chairwoman of the London Rent Assessment Committee involves annual rents registered for two flats in an East London block in June 1993. A rent officer registered rents of £3,900 and £3,640 while the landlord argued for higher figures. In October the Court of Appeal allowed an appeal by the landlord against the agreed figures. That finding is now under appeal.
