Getting to 100%

We blogged recently about the ‘disappointing’ awards made in RRO cases, especially since Vadamalayan v Stewart [2020] UKUT 0183.

We had a look this morning through the recent crop of RRO awards listed and are pleased to report a marked change in approach.
(for RROs click the checkbox Housing Act 2004 and Housing and Planning Act 2016 to get these).

Here’s a quick summary below (or download here) where we copy the current listing of RRO cases with an extract of the key award paragraph from the decision. Pretty much all working on 100% of the rent or near as and doffing their caps to Vadamalayan with some mentioning the confirmation ruling in Chan. One even admits that “We therefore have no real discretion…”. Seems the penny is dropping at last.
