In R (First Real Estates UK Ltd) v Birmingham CC (2009) the claimant company entered into arrangements to supply the council with properties to be used as temporary accommodation for the homeless. The terms enabled the arrangements to be ended on written notice. Having received complaints, and having inspected some of the properties, the council gave seven days' written notice to end the agreements and re-housed the occupiers. The company sought a judicial review contending (1) that the individual agreements with the council were the subject of an overarching, unwritten agreement that the arrangements would not be summarily terminated or (2) that the council had raised a legitimate expectation to that effect. The High Court dismissed the claim. The council had terminated the agreements in accordance with their terms.
