Court Win for Richard Moss Solicitors

Richard Moss Solicitors was instructed on 30 November 2012 to help a residential landlord defend his tenant’s housing disrepair claim. The instructions were received extremely late because a two-day trial had already been listed for 10 and 11 December 2012.

The landlord’s defence was heavily dependent on his surveyor’s evidence but the landlord did not have the Court’s permission to rely on it at trial so Richard Moss quickly arranged a Court hearing for 5 December 2012 so that his landlord client could ask for the Court’s permission.

At the hearing, Richard Moss advocated against the tenant’s barrister who argued that permission should not be granted. Richard Moss won the argument. Even more, Richard Moss went on to persuade the Court that the trial should be adjourned to March 2013 at the earliest so that he, and his landlord client, would have a proper opportunity to prepare for trial.

This was an excellent result that the client was absolutely delighted with.
