Hughes v Borodex Ltd  EWCA Civ 425;  WLR (D) 106
“A tenant who had made extensive improvements at her own expense to the flat which she held on a long residential tenancy was not entitled to have those improvements disregarded by a Rent Assessment Committee fixing the rent of the new assured periodic tenancy of the same premises. On the proper interpretation of Sch 10 to the Local Government and Housing Act 1989, the improvements fell to be taken into account even though the effect was that the new rent as assessed exceeded the statutory maximum for protection as an assured tenant, the tenant lost her protection and the landlord became entitled to serve a notice to quit.”
