Hearing - David Brooks v Alistair Lindsay Morris (Executor of the Estate of Henry Newitt)

Mr. David Brooks, a US Citizen, agreed to rent premises owned by Mr. Henry Newitt for his family vacation in December 2005. When he arrived at the premises he found that it was “unclean and uninhabitable” and so he requested a refund of all monies he paid in advance, which included both the rental fee and a 25% deposit. Mr. Newitt refused his request. The High Court found that the property was in good condition and that Mr. Brooks only wanted a refund because his wife was not satisfied with the arrangements. The court ruled that Mr. Newitt was entitled to both the rental fee and the 25% deposit. The Court of Appeal upheld the High Court’s decision. Mr. Brooks now appeals to the CCJ.
