    Earlier this month, we published an article relating to “whistleblowing” claims and what an employee may be entitled to claim before the employment tribunal after having been treated unfairly for having made such a “protected disclosure”.

    We now report on another Court of Appeal case concerning whistleblowing claims, but from a very different perspective. Nevertheless, we consider that it may be useful for this article to be read in conjunction with the earlier article entitled “Long-term loss of earnings and whisteblowing claims”.

    We now have less than a year to go before the General Data Protection Regulation comes into force on 25 May 2018, replacing the Data Protection Act 1998.

    This EU law has already caused some controversy and will likely continue to do so beyond its implementation, given the familiarity that organisations have with the procedures brought into force by the Data Protection Act.

    What do we mean by the phrase “long leasehold house”? In the English Legal System there are two main classes of property title, Freehold and Leasehold. As the owner of a freehold property you own the land and any buildings on them. In contrast as the owner of a leasehold property you will simply have a temporary right to occupy the property under the terms of a lease which has been granted out of a freehold title. A lease will endure for a specified period of time after expiry of which you then will have no interest in the property whatsoever. A long lease is a lease for a term of more than 21 years. Typically for residential property this will usually be for terms starting at 99 years.
