LAST WEEK the Court of Appeal passed a landmark case that judged Britain’s biggest landlords have won the right to be treated as priority creditors when a company goes into Administration.  

The Court of Appeal ruled that tech retailer Game Retail, formerly known as Game Group, must pay its landlords some £3m in back rent for the period before it went into Adminsitration two years ago.

Those landlords included Britain’s biggest property companies, Land Securities, British Land, Hammerson and Intu.

The decision may be appealed to the Supreme Court but many questions remain in the meantime for both Recovery Practitioners and Landlords.
