The two conjoined appeals of Universal Estates v Tiensia and Honeysuckle Properties v Fletcher were heard by the Court of Appeal on 7 May 2010. These are both appeals relating to the tenancy deposit protection provisions introduced by the Housing Act 2004.
The judgement has been reserved and we are informed that further questions were asked of the various parties involved fairly recently. As the Court of Appeal is now in recess until 1 October there is now unlikely to be a any decision in these key cases until after that date.
UPDATE- The Court of Appeal has now handed down its decision. A full report is available here.
