Our Case:

The RLA is fighting a ruling which could stop landlords taking back properties from tenants who are refusing to pay rent.

Usually a landlord can serve notice to take back their property when tenants stop paying rent, however, a licensing technicality has left the landlord, Mr Jarvis, unable to do this, despite his tenants building up massive arrears.

Mr Jarvis holds a licence in his company name, with the property owned in his own name. Until now, this has not been an issue in England or Wales.

However, a court has ruled the notice he has served on his tenants under Section 8 invalid, on the basis it is the company, not the individual that holds the licence.

The decision could have huge financial implications for landlords across the board, and the RLA is supporting Mr Jarvis in his appeal.

We believe landlords should be able to regain possession where they have a legitimate reason - and we believe the Court of Appeal will agree with us.

We also need your help.

We are launching a CrowdJustice campaign to help cover the legal costs for the challenge, which we hope will set a precedent that will benefit all landlords.
