Concurrent Interest in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Harris and Another v Goddard and Others
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 25 July 1983

    Joint tenancy is a form of co-ownership, or concurrent ownership, of property. Its special feature is the right of survivorship, whereby the right to the whole of the property accrues automatically to the surviving joint tenants or joint tenant on the death of any one joint tenant. Severance is, as I understand it, the process of separating off the share of a joint tenant, so that the concurrent ownership will continue but the right of survivorship will no longer apply.

  • Cobb v Cobb
    • Court of Appeal
    • 08 June 1955

    The second is that I know of no power that the Court has under section 17 to vary agreed or established titles to property.

  • Manchester Airport Plc v Dutton and Others (Defendants/Applicants)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 February 1999

    In my judgment the true principle is that a licensee not in occupation may claim possession against a trespasser if that is a necessary remedy to vindicate and give effect to such rights of occupation as by contract with his licensor he enjoys. This is the same principle as allows a licensee who is in de facto possession to evict a trespasser. There is no respectable distinction, in law or logic, between the two situations. An estate owner may seek an order whether he is in possession or not.

  • Bedson v Bedson
    • Court of Appeal
    • 22 July 1965

    If afreehold is conveyed to and upon trust for themselves as joint tenants, each has the same beneficial interest in that property as the. If there be two beneficial joint tenants, severance produces a beneficial tenancy in common in two equal shares. and by declaration of the beneficial joint tenancy between and B, their respective rights and titles are no less clearly laid down and established than if there had been a declaration of a beneficial tenancy in common in equal undivided shares.

  • Johnson v Moreton
    • House of Lords
    • 27 July 1978

    If any clause such as clause 27 was valid landlords might well insist upon a similar clause being introduced into every lease; and prospective tenants, having no money with which to buy the land they wanted to farm, would, in reality, have had little choice but to agree. Accordingly if clause 27 is enforceable the security of tenure which Parliament clearly intended to confer, and did confer upon tenant farmers for the public good would have become a dead letter.

  • Hammersmith and Fulham London Borough Council v Monk
    • House of Lords
    • 05 December 1991

    The action of giving notice to determine a periodic tenancy is in form positive; but both on authority and on the principle so aptly summed up in the pithy Scottish phrase "tacit relocation" the substance of the matter is that it is by his omission to give notice of termination that each party signifies the necessary positive assent to the extension of the term for a further period.

  • PHRJ Newbold and Others v The Coal Authority
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 May 2013

    In all cases, one must first construe the statutory or contractual requirement in question. Finally, it may be that even non-compliance with a requirement is not fatal. In all such cases, it is necessary to consider the words of the statute or contract, in the light of its subject matter, the background, the purpose of the requirement, if that is known or determined, and the actual or possible effect of non-compliance on the parties.
