Costs uplifts and landlords’ liability in nuisance: Coventry v Lawrence (No.2)

The Supreme Court has ruled on the consequential issues arising from its earlier judgment. Stephen Hockman QC and William Upton continue to represent the appellants in this landmark nuisance case.

LexisNexis has recently published an article (available using the link below) by William Upton about the recent decision, which deals with the landlord’s potential liability in nuisance and the vexed question of the recovery of CFA uplifts and ATE insurance premiums.
