Midland Heart Limited v Margaret Burns and CA (a protected party by his litigation friend, the Official Solicitor (OS))


In this case the landlord already had a Suspended Possession Order due to rent arrears. They sought to enforce it based on allegations of anti social behaviour on the part of the tenant's disabled son.

The court held that fresh proceedings would have to be issued to rely upon the anti social behaviour

The court also allowed the son to be joined as a party to the proceedings even though he was not a tenant.
