Christopher Mann appears for the Appellant in Khan v Mehmood  EWCA Civ 791 against Toby Vanhegan and Matthew Lee for the Respondent and with Liz Davies QC and Marina Sergides for the Housing Law Practitioners’ Association, as intervenor.
The Court of Appeal (Baker, Phillips and Edis LJJ) found for Christopher’s client on ground 1, concluding that submissions made to a Judge in 2014 amounted to a serious procedural irregularity, and also went on, by way of ground 2, to hold that the 10% uplift for general damages established by Simmons v Castle  1 WLR 1239 applies to damages for breach of a repairing covenant.
