The Supreme Court has now handed down judgment in Croydon LBC v Kalonga [2022] UKSC 7, answering a number of the questions raised by the High Court and Court of Appeal:

  • Can a fixed-term secure tenancy be determined prior to its natural expiry date?
  • When is it subject to termination by the landlord?
  • Can it be determined by possession order?
  • Is it necessary to have a forfeiture clause?
  • What does a forfeiture clause look like in a tenancy granted by a local housing authority?
  • How does the law of forfeiture apply, and what does it mean?
  • What is the effect of a break clause?

Kelvin Rutledge QC and Riccardo Calzavara, who appeared for Croydon LBC, consider each of these questions in this one hour webinar.
