In the recent case of Hough v Greathall (2015) the Court of Appeal has confirmed a Landlord who opposes the grant of a new business tenancy on the grounds of redevelopment must establish its intention at the hearing date, and not at the date of service of notice.

This decision thereby confirming the principles set out in 2003 by Parliament not to change the Law as to the timing for the demonstration of the landlords relevant intention for the purpose, the only requirement being the landlord to state whether it was opposed to the grant of a new tenancy and on which ground, the procedure under the 1954 Act requiring the landlord to make good its opposition at the date of hearing.
