• Hilton appeal decision
Landlords of a portfolio of Hilton hotels have won a UK appeal court decision against the hotel group. Hilton is judged to have breached the terms of its leases, by assigning them to new group companies without seeking consent.

The move by Hilton had effectively released the ultimate guarantor of the rents due, Hilton Worldwide Inc, from its responsibility. Law firm BLP, which acted for the landlords, says the decision will give greater guidance for landlords in future.
