Northumberland & Durham Property Trust Ltd v Ouaha [2014] EWCA Civ 571

Appeal concerning whether the appellant, married under a Sharia ceremony, was a 'surviving spouse' for the purposes of the Rent Act 1977. Appeal dismissed but Vos LJ comments that the question might raise some difficult points of law requiring full argument before the court though that had not happened in this hearing.
