Harris v Mayor and Burgesses of the London Borough of Hounslow

Landlord and tenant – Local authority housing. A tenant who requested a statutory review outside the seven day period laid down by s 85ZA (2) of the Housing Act 1985 (as amended) was not entitled to a statutory review and the landlord local authority had no obligation or power to conduct one. The Court of Appeal Civil Division held that there was no express power in s 85ZA of the 1985 Act to extend either the time within which a request should be made or the time by which a review must be concluded.
