Wandsworth London Borough Council v Randall [2007] EWCA Civ 1126

“Where a council sought an order for possession of a dwelling house let under a secure periodic tenancy under ground 16 of Pt III of Sch 2 to the Housing Act 1985, on the basis that accommodation was more extensive than was reasonably required by the tenant who had succeeded to the tenancy on the death of the original tenant, the relevant date for determining the composition of the successor tenant’s family was not the date of succession, but the date of the possession hearing.”
