Merton London Borough Council v Jones; [2008] WLR (D) 194

“The liability of a tolerated trespasser to pay mesne profits to a former public landlord terminated when the tolerated trespasser had decided to give up possession and had removed his belongings from his dwelling house, and not at the time when the former landlords were formally notified that he was no longer in possession of the dwelling, even though the tolerated trespasser continued to retain the keys to the dwelling.”
