In EK v The City of Edinburgh Council Westwater Advocates’ David Anderson successfully represented a local authority respondent in a Lands Tribunal claim by a tenant over her application to purchase her council house. The case raised disputed issues of fact and law.
The Tribunal held that the applicant had failed to prove her case. The Tribunal’s decision contains an interesting discussion of the application in Scots Law of section 7 of the Interpretation Act 1978 which contains certain presumptions as to service of documents by post.
