Court of Appeal decision confirming that Judge entitled to find that disrepair as a result of defective damp proof course

Uddin v London Borough of Islington 10/03/2015 Court of Appeal

The local authority appealed against an award of damages arising from disrepair, primarily rising damp. The Court of Appeal found that HHJ Mitchell was entitled to find that there had been disrepair as a result of a defective damp proof course. Further the judge was entitled to refer to reports that had been included in the court bundles. In the earlier county court decision (6 May 2014) HHJ Mitchell had awarded the Claimants damages in the sum of £14,244.02 for a period from October 2004- September 2009.
