In Surrey County Council v Lamond  12 EG 170 CA, the Court of Appeal held that, if it is impractical for an employee to carry out his duties unless he lives in a particular property, a term can be implied into his contract of employment that he must 'occupy the dwelling-house for the better performance of his duties' with the result that the Housing Act 1985 can apply to prevent his tenancy of that property being a secured tenancy.
