Leases provided for tenants to pay the landlord a fee if they assigned their leases to a third party. Former and current tenants who had become liable to pay such a fee brought proceedings claiming that the fee was unenforceable under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 and under the Consumer Credit Act 1974. The court held that the fee did not entail the provision of credit and that therefore any claim under the Consumer Credit Act must fail.
