Landlord Fergus Wilson ordered to pay £125,000 in costs to Ashford Borough Council

Landlord Fergus Wilson ordered to pay £125,000 in costs to Ashford Borough Council

Samuel Davis, led by Adam Solomon QC and representing Ashford Borough Council, obtained an order upholding an agreement on costs, in a case where the Defendant sought to argue that his barrister was no longer instructed when the agreement was reached, and that he should not be bound to the same. 

Darryl Allen QC, sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge, considered the authority of counsel to bind a client, and separately found that he would have made a costs order in similar terms to the agreement, which included a £125,000 payment on account.

The case has previously seen Samuel Davis and Adam Solomon QC obtain final injunctive relief under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 against the Defendant, Fergus Wilson, a man who has been described in the press as ‘Britain’s most controversial landlord’ and an ‘infamous property mogul’
