RadcliffesLeBrasseur LLP achieves success at the Court of Appeal in property litigation case of Kensquare v Boakye

On 22 November 2021, the Court of Appeal handed down Judgment in the anticipated case of Kensquare Limited v Mary Adwoa Akyaa Boakye [2021] EWCA Civ 1725.

RadcliffesLeBrasseur LLP, on behalf of the tenant / appellant, Ms Boakye, successfully appealed the decision of the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) overturning the previous decision of the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber). The appeal obtained welcome clarification concerning Ms Boakye’s liability for service and administration charges falling due under her lease. In particular, it clarified whether time was of the essence in relation to the lease’s interim service charge provisions, and whether the Landlord could recover by way of service or administration charges, costs it had incurred in litigation with the tenant.​
