Camden London Borough Council v Stafford [2012] EWCA Civ 839; [2012] WLR (D) 184

“A notice under section 128 of the Housing Act 1996 seeking an order for possession of a dwelling let under an introductory tenancy could not be conditional. Similarly a review of that decision under section 129 could not introduce conditions. Thus a review notice purporting to confirm the original decision to seek possession but not pursuing possession because alternatives were put in place did not confirm the original decision. If the landlord subsequently sought possession a fresh notice under section 128 would have to be served.”
