Leases without Terms – Berrisford v Mexfield – Update

Just a quick note to remind readers that the appeal on Berrisford v Mexfield is listed in the Supreme Court for 5th and 6th October. This is the case about whether leases that cannot be ended by the landlords unless the tenant defaults (and widely used by Housing Associations at one stage) are valid or not.

And, more interestingly, what happens if they are not valid.

The decision is not likely to be out much before Christmas, especially as it is a 7 member court, but there may be some indications of the way matters are pointing, and if anybody hears these I’d be very interested.
