Possession order on local authority property

Holly was successful in securing a possession order on behalf of a local authority against a tenant who was found to have used weapons to attack the communal residence. As the tenant was schizophrenic, the case involved consideration of significant medical evidence regarding the tenant’s mental health and raised issues under the Equality Act 2010 and Human Rights Act 1998.

The tenant appealed the decision but following a full day’s hearing the decision was upheld.
