Swift v Carpenter - Court of Appeal Judgment

 

The Court of Appeal has handed down its much-anticipated judgment in Swift v Carpenter this morning, in respect of accommodation capital costs and the Roberts v Johnstone principle.

PIBA intervened in the appeal to try to ensure that the Court considered as many possible factual situations as possible, as many potential outcomes as possible, and that a decision of principle might be delivered which can be applied in other cases.

We are hugely grateful to Darryl Allen QC (former PIBA Chair) and Richard Whitehall, who appeared for us pro bono on the appeal.  And to Simpson Millar who acted as our solicitors on the same basis.

The judgment can be found here, and a Note from Darryl and Richard summarising and explaining it here (the Note is only available to PIBA Members - you will need to log in to access the Note).

They will both be speaking on a Webinar - for PIBA members and their pupils only - at 4pm on Wednesday next week, 14th October.  Details of how to join that webinar will be published on the PIBA web page here.

Kind regards

 

Steven Snowden QC

PIBA Chair
