A ‘riotous’ time at the Landmark Property Moot

DATE: 13 Nov 2017

The 1st round of the Landmark Chambers Property Moot was held at Chambers on Saturday 11th November 2017.  The Moot competition is now in its 4th year, and we were delighted to host teams from 26 universities, competing for 8 places in the 2nd round.  The students were appealing (and cross-appealing) against a refusal to make a possession order against an assured shorthold tenant who had participated in the “Referendum Riots” before taking his tenancy -  and whose presence, as a “convicted rioter and now infamous anti-Brexit campaigner” was causing concern to the other residents of his block.

The standard was very high, and our congratulations to all students competing this year.  The following teams have progressed to the 2nd round, due to take place later this month:

University of Bristol
University of Cambridge
London South Bank University
University of Kent
University of Oxford
Queen Mary University of London
University of Winchester
University of Warwick
