Kelvin Rutledge QC and Riccardo Calzavara in the Supreme Court today

12 Jan 2022


Today Kelvin Rutledge QC and Riccardo Calzavara of Cornerstone Barristers are in the Supreme Court in an appeal (Croydon London Borough Council v Kalonga) that seeks clarity as to the manner in which a local authority can determine a fixed-term secure tenancy during its term and, particularly, whether a landlord can terminate a flexible tenancy agreement prior to the expiry of the fixed term if the agreement does not expressly provide for re-entry or forfeiture.

Kelvin and Riccardo represent the Appellant, Croydon Borough Council, and are instructed by Jenny Fraser-Browne.
