Leases, rocks, and hard places: Estates without contracts and contracts without estates

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Suggests, with reference to Procter v Procter (CA), that the Law of Property Act 1925 enabled the possibility of granting a lease to oneself. Argues that Rye v Rye (HL) adopts too contractual a view of the Act and that Millet LJ's approach in Ingram v Inland Revenue Commissioners (CA) is preferable.
