A colossal success where the sum of over £167,000 was over paid by various leaseholders to the landlord. The law as it stands provides for the landlord to safeguard the funds in a trust account. What though ought to be the position when so much money has been paid to the landlord by the leaseholders?
It was agreed by both parties legal representatives that this was a sort of a test case given that so much money had been paid over a 10 year period, by a number of leaseholders.
Return of the money to the leaseholders was one aspect that was recently secured in a judgment which was recently handed down in favour of our clients upon consideration of the law.
Tahir Ashraf (a non-practising barrister as he then was) as litigation assistant to Steven Kinch of SDK Law (to whom 4A LAW refer non immigration matters) assisted in what the client called ‘a fantastic result’.
