Merton London Borough Council v Jones

Court of Appeal

“A tolerated trespasser was liable to pay mesne profits for overstaying in his former dwelling only up to the time he had decided to give up possession and removed his belongings, even if he had retained the keys and told the landlord of his decision much later.”
