Thank you for your very explicit reply. I do have some more questions for you.
The First Tier Tribunal Property Chamber form, RTB1,is headed, "Application for a determination as to whether a dwelling house is suitable for occupation for the elderly".
From this, it would appear that they have already loaded the dice in their favour!
They then ask for details of the property, such as location, suitability for the elderly, including any improvements done by myself. There is nowhere on the form to argue precedent or anything else!
Obviously, I will include a letter protesting their refusal and the reasoning as to why they should grant the appeal.
One other item. Under Para 11 to schedule 5 of the Housing Act 1985. Would the change of Salisbury District Council (the original landlord) to a Unitary Authority (ie: Wiltshire Council) affect the precedent?
