Smith v Khan

Landlord and tenant – Trespass by landlord. The judge had been wrong to assess damages on the basis that the contractual term of an assured shorthold tenancy had come to an end by surrender as of 15 April 2015 and, on the facts, it had come to an end at the expiry of the fixed term on 30 June 2015. However, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the judge had been entitled to take the view that the district judge's award of a daily rate for trespass had been simply too low and it was not established that his assessment of the daily rate should be interfered with.
