Mundy v. the Trustees of the Sloane Stanley Estate) – ALEP response 24 January 2018

A response from ALEP – written by Mark Chick, ALEP Director and Partner, Bishop & Sewell LLP

The Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP) has been eagerly awaiting the outcome in the Appeal of the so-called ‘Mundy’ case, (Mundy v. the Trustees of the Sloane Stanley Estate).
The Court of Appeal has today dismissed the appeal made by tenants in this case. The applicants were seeking to argue for a radically different way of calculating relativity, following on from their unsuccessful attempt to encourage the Upper Tribunal to do so in the original decision of that tribunal.
