Birmingham City Council v Qasim and others [2009] EWCA Civ 1080; [2009] WLR (D) 301

“The allocation of a secure tenancy and the grant of such a tenancy by a local housing authority were separate concepts, so that where the authority granted a tenancy to a tenant to whom accommodation had been allocated inconsistently with the authority’s allocation scheme, pursuant to Pt VI of the Housing Act 1996, the tenancy was not thereby rendered void or ineffective.”
