Day v Hosebay – Warning of Supreme Court Judgment

This is the long-awaited decision on the meaning of a “house” in s2(1) of the Leasehold Reform Act 1967 and matters because if you have a long lease of a “house” you can normally acquire the freehold on advantageous terms, whereas if it isn’t a “house” then you can’t.
More anon.
