179. Residents without any interest in the land.

A mere licensee without exclusive possession cannot sue in private nuisance1. However, a 'tolerated trespasser' who has exclusive possession of premises after the end of his tenancy has sufficient interest in the land to enable him to sue2. If the defendant is a public authority, a resident whose enjoyment of his home has been adversely affected may be able to seek damages under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights
