The Supreme Court has handed down judgment in Aviva Investors Ground Rent GP Ltd and another (Respondents) v Williams and others (Appellants)  UKSC 6 (8 February 2023).
The judgment addresses the following issues:
To what extent is a term in a residential lease which allows the landlord to revise the tenant’s share of the service charges invalidated by section 27A(6) of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985?
If the effect is that any discretion to re-apportion the service charge is transferred from the landlord to the First-tier Tribunal does section 27A(6) enable the tenant as well as the landlord to invoke the Tribunal’s jurisdiction?
James Sandham and Robert Brown represented the Appellants instructed by Janice Northover at Northover Litigation.
