Here are some of the files referred to in the message:

UNITE's Grounds of Appeal to Upper Tribunal

Upper Tribunal's Decision to allow the appeal by UNITE

Tenants' Response form with Application and Grounds for Cross-Appeal

Refusal by UT to grant an appeal on a similar ground in another case:

"The applicant's suggested lack of knowledge of the need to obtain a licence was a negative, rather than a positive consideration, as it is clearly a commercial landlord which can be expected to make proper enquiries."
