SWI Limited v P & I Data Services Limited

West v The London Borough of Newham
Social Housing/Right to Buy: The Court of Appeal held that there was nothing in the Housing Act 1985 to the effect that the valuation of a district valuer was conclusive as to the extent of the tenancy as the function of the district valuer was solely to determine the value of the property.
Feld v. The London Borough of Barnet
Social Housing/Homelessness: The Court of Appeal held that there was no apparent bias where a s.202 review of an earlier original homelessness decision had been carried out by the same reviewing officer who had carried out a previous, but unconnected, review; nor was there any apparent bias - or breach of the Review Procedure Regulations - where the reviewing officer had sought the views of her superior officer on the related issue of allocations.
