Rents in an administration

I noticed that, in the recent Game Station appeal, the Court of Appeal ruled that an administrator can be liable for rent as an expense of the administration if use is made of the premises. Is this the same for other rents, such as service charge and insurance rents?

Rent, service charge and insurance?

You are correct that the Court of Appeal ruled that an administrator can be liable for rent as an expense of the administration if use is made of the premises - liability to be calculated on a day-by-day basis. the case does not expressly mention service charges and insurance, but since the High Court decision did, and this decision is a successful landlord's cross-appeal against the lower court decision, I think we can assume service charge and insurance are similarly treated.
