Statutory nuisance: Pearshouse v Birmingham City Council (4 November 1998) Queen's Bench Divisional Court

United Kingdom
The fact that an abatement notice in respect of a statutory nuisance under Section 82(6) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 does not contain a complete list of all the defects complained of or that the notice contains some errors does not invalidate the abatement notice. The notice is intended to be merely a warning by the tenant to his landlord of the existence of a statutory nuisance. It does not require the tenant to be over technical nor to prejudge matters in their entirety. (Independent Law Reports, 16 November 1998)
