Spielplatz Ltd v Pearson and another

Landlord and tenant – Possession. The present appeal turned primarily on whether the judge, in dismissing the claimant freehold owner's claim for possession of a plot on a naturist resort from the defendant tenants, had been right to find that the tenancy had been one under which a dwelling-house was let as a separate dwelling for the purposes of s 1 of the Housing Act 1988, and so gave the defendants an assured tenancy. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the claimant's appeal, held that, among other things, the judge had been correct to conclude on the evidence that the chalet, when constructed, had been part of the land.
