Paragon Asra Housing Ltd (formerly known as Paragon Community Housing Ltd) v Neville

Landlord and tenant – Recovery of possession. When making a possession order, the court had undertaken the relevant proportionality inquiry and had satisfied itself that possession should be given and that, if it was not, the order could lawfully be enforced. The order was binding between the parties. The tenant could have no right, absent any relevant change of circumstances, to require the court to re-consider the same question upon the landlord's claim to enforce the order. Applying those legal principles, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the landlord's appeal against the recorder's decision to allow the tenant's appeal and to suspend the possession order at issue until a further hearing when the issue of potential discrimination by the proposed eviction could be determined.
