The recent appeal judgment in Irving v Morgan Sindall PLC [2018] EWHC 1147 (QB) by Mr Justice Turner is greatly appreciated for bringing much needed clarity over two issues credit hire practitioners regularly battle with: (1) Where is the line drawn for impecuniosity to be established; and (2) Must a claimant have a personal liability to pay the hire charges in order for it to be recoverable from the defendant?
