Abstract

Comments on the Court of Appeal decision in Birmingham City Council v Lloyd on whether a person who had entered occupation of local authority housing as a trespasser could ever successfully invoke the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.8 as a defence to possession proceedings, given the assumption that local authorities seeking possession were acting according to public need and the principle that the courts should not assume the role of allocating public housing stock. Notes the case's relevance to social landlords and highlights its potential relevance to private landlords.
