Sarvenaz Fouladi (Claimant/Respondent) v (1) Darout Ltd (2) Ahmed El Kerrami (3) Sarah El Kerrami (Defendants/Appellants) & St Mary Abbots Court Ltd (Defendant) : Sarvenaz Fouladi v St Mary Abbots Cou

Judgment Date: 19 Dec 2018

A lessee and occupiers of a flat were liable in nuisance for noise caused to the occupiers of the flat below where the flooring of the upper flat was inadequate to prevent significant noise transmission. The lessee was also in breach of covenant under the lease for failing to obtain the landlord's consent to renovation works resulting in the inadequate flooring. Although the landlord was aware of the works, it had no knowledge of the nuisance and was therefore not liable by participation.

A judge had been correct to restrict the defendants' recoverable costs to court fees only under CPR r.3.14 where they had served their costs budget late without a reasonable excuse. Although the decision was on the tougher end of the spectrum as to substance and on the leaner end as to analysis, the defendants had not been deprived of a trial altogether.

Judgment Date: 03 May 2013

Where an investor in a shopping centre had pre-emption rights under a lease to increase its share of the shopping centre's net rents if another investor exercised an option, but the other investor decided to cancel its option before the lease was executed, the lease was not to be construed so as to give the first investor an unconditional right to increase its share.

The effect of a supplemental deed between a landlord and a partnership, as the assignee of an underlease, was to restrict the assignee's liability for rent to the partnership assets to the exclusion of the personal assets of individual partners and in the case of default to limit any recovery by the landlord against the tenant and any previous tenant in the same way.
