Farm Land in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Gilmore v Baker-Carr
    • Court of Appeal
    • 02 Jul 1962

    The definition may, of course, be wide enough to include other buildings, such as a broiler house, and if it is, effect must be given to the language, But the clear impression which I receive from the statutory language is that the buildings exempted were to be ancillary or complementary to the agricultural purpose of the land, and not vice vorsa. In the, present case If one begins with the land, one finds there Is no land upon which poultry farming is carried on.

  • Blackmore v Butler
    • Court of Appeal
    • 19 May 1954

    There remains the question whether the cottage, by itself, was "used for agriculture" (which I take to mean "used for the purpose of agriculture" or "used in connection with agriculture") so as to constitute agricultural land. Taking, then, the history of this cottage into account, its situation and the purpose for which it was let to the Defendant it follows almost inevitably, as I think, that it is "agricultural land" and that the learned Judge was right in so deciding.

  • Lloyd v Brassey
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 26 Nov 1968

    As this is one of our first cases on the Redundancy Payments Act, 1965, it is as well to remind ourselves of the policy of this legislation. As I read the Act, a worker of long standing is now recognised as having an accrued right in his Job; and his right gains in value with the years. So much so that, if the Job is shutdown, he is entitled to compensation for loss of the Job - Just as a director gets compensation for lossof office.

  • Newborough (Lord) v Jones
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 17 May 1974

    I have formed the view that, the subject-matter being a notice, it is implicit in the provisions of section 92 that, if served by leaving at the proper address of the person to be served, it must be left there in a proper way; that is to say, in a manner which a reasonable person, minded to bring the document to the attention of the person to whom the notice is addressed, would adopt.

  • Lucy Ann Andrews Habberfield v Jane Sarah Andrews Habberfield
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 May 2019

    Looking back from the moment when assurances are repudiated, the nearer the overall outcome comes to the expected reciprocal performance of requested acts in return for the assurance, the stronger will be the case for an award based on or approximating to the expectation interest created by the assurance. That does no more than to recognise party autonomy to decide for themselves what a proportionate reward would be for the contemplated detriment.
