Burton v Camden LBC 
Burton v Camden London Borough Council 
- Burton and another were joint tenants under a statutory periodic tenancy (protected housing)
- The other person wished to leave, so purported to assign, by way of deed of release, her ‘part’ of the joint tenancy to Burton, so that Burton could retain benefits
- Could part of a joint tenancy be assigned, bearing in mind the non-assignment clause and statutory prohibition on such an assignment?
- The ‘deed of release’ operated as an assignment, which was prohibited
