*Mohamed v Mayor and Burgesses of the Barnet London Borough

Licence – Licence to occupy premises. In relation to the licence of a property granted by a private landlord's agent to the respondent local authority, the requirements of Sch 1, para 6b of the Housing Act 1985 were satisfied by the provision for vacant possession on not less than 14 days' notice. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division dismissed the applicant's appeal against the decision that her agreement with the authority for occupation of the licensed property was not an agreement that attracted the security of tenure provisions of the Housing Act 1985.
