Renting in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council v Host Group Ltd
    • Court of Appeal
    • 03 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.

  • Samuel Properties (Developments) Ltd v Hayek
    • Court of Appeal
    • 24 t 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.

  • Barrett and Others v Morgan
    • House of Lords
    • 27 r 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.

  • Cook v Thomas and Another
    • Court of Appeal
    • 17 n 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.

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

    The time and manner of the payment is to be ascertained according to the true construction of the contract: and not by reference to out-dated relics of medieval law.

  • Arnold v National Westminster Bank Plc
    • House of Lords
    • 25 s 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.

  • Kumar v Dunning
    • Court of Appeal
    • 15 s 1987

    The surety covenant is given as a support or buttress to covenants given by a tenant to a landlord. The covenants by the tenant relate not only to the payment of rent, but also to repair, insurance and user of the premises. As it seems to me, in principle a covenant by a third party guaranteeing the performance by the tenant of his obligations should touch and concern the reversion as much as do the tenants' covenants themselves.
