R (on the application of Cawsand Fort Management Co Ltd) v First-tier Tribunal

Landlord and tenant – Lease. The claimant sought judicial review of the decision of the defendant First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) (the FTT) making a further management order. It alleged that the FTT had had no jurisdiction to make the order under s 24 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the order was in respect of land outwith the leaseholders' premises, but which was properly 'in relation' to those premises. Accordingly, it was within the scope of s 24 of the Act and within the FTT's jurisdiction.
