Landlord and tenant – Assured tenancy. The Court of Appeal Civil Division dismissed the local authority's appeal against a decision of high court. It held that having regard to the Local Government Finance Act 1992, the defendant landlord had liability to pay council tax in respect of certain dwellings let by him on assured shorthold tenancies. That was because as the tenant's liability continued, those tenancies subsisted as periodic tenancies even when the tenant had gone out of occupation.
