Suppose Theodore the statutory periodic assured tenant is served with a Notice under s.21, Housing Act 1988 by Larry his landlord and then stays until Larry applies to a court for a possession order by posting a £300+ fee.
Then Theodore stays again until Larry pays additional £100+ fee to request for bailiffs to remove Theodore.
Suppose Larry further pays a lawyer £1000 to submit all of these processes to the court etc. 4 months later, bailiffs have come and ushered Theodore out of the premises.
Can Larry ever claim any of these legal costs of £1400+ from Theodore? What are the rules that determine whether Larry will be awarded these or any of these costs?
