Renting in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council v Host Group Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 03 Noviembre 1987

    Thus, like all points of construction, the meaning of this rent review clause depends upon the particular language used interpreted having regard to the context provided by the whole document and the matrix of the material surrounding circumstances, whilst recognising, therefore, that the particular language used will always be of paramount importance, it is proper and only sensible, when construing a rent review clause, to have in mind what normally is the commercial purpose of such a clause.

  • Cook v Thomas and Another
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 17 Marzo 2010

    It has been said many times, Benmax v Austin Motor Co [1955] AC 370, Biogen Inc v Medeva Inc [1997] RPC 1 and Assicurazioni Generali SA v Arab Insurance Group [2003] 1 WLR 577 being only three of the examples of high authority, that an appellate court can hardly ever overturn primary findings of fact by a trial judge who has seen the witnesses give evidence in a case in which credibility was in issue.

  • Barrett and Others v Morgan
    • House of Lords
    • 27 Enero 2000

    Formerly the extinguishment of the tenancy by surrender also extinguished the reversion to any sub-tenancy, so that the remedy for the rent and the covenants attached to the reversion ceased with the reversion to which they were annexed. This unsatisfactory state of affairs was remedied by statute in two stages.

  • Samuel Properties (Developments) Ltd v Hayek
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 24 Julio 1972

    It was argued that there was a distinction (as to time limits) between options to determine, or to renew, or to acquire the reversion, and a right such as the present.

  • Re Toshoku Finance UK Plc
    • House of Lords
    • 20 Febrero 2002

    Expenses incurred after the liquidation date need no further equitable reason why they should be paid. It is not the business of the liquidator to incur expenses for any other purpose. There would be little point in a statute which specifically imposed liabilities upon a company in liquidation if they were payable only in the rare case in which it emerged with all other creditors having been paid.

  • Bailey (C. H.) Ltd v Memorial Enterprises Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 16 Noviembre 1973

    That appears from a passage in Holdsworth's "History of English Law", volume 7 at page 262, which was referred to by Lord Justice Evershed in Property Holding Co, Ltd. v. Clark (1948) 1 K. B. 630 at page 648:- "In modern law rent is not conceived of as a thing, but rather as a payment "which the tenant is bound by his contract to make to his landlord for the use of the land."

  • Arnold v National Westminster Bank Plc
    • House of Lords
    • 25 Abril 1991

    Cause of action estoppel arises where the cause of action in the later proceedings is identical to that in the earlier proceedings, the latter having been between the same parties or their privies and having involved the same subject matter. In such a case the bar is absolute in relation to all points decided unless fraud or collusion is alleged, such as to justify setting aside the earlier judgment.
