In this case, the Court set aside a warrant after an eviction on the basis that Southwark LBC (the Council) had acted oppressively. Whilst the Council had followed procedure and the tenant was in breach of the suspended possession order, the Council's policy required them to consider an attachment of earnings. The tenant in this case was working and the Court concluded it would have been an appropriate sanction. The Court even commented that was precisely what the policy was drafted to address. To ignore the policy would therefore have been unfair and, by definition, oppressive.
