Day v Hosebay – Warning of Supreme Court Judgment

leave a comment »

Just a brief note to say that the Supreme Court Judgments in the cases of Day v Hosebay and Howard De Walden v Lexgorge will be given by the Supreme Court tomorrow 10th October at 9.45.

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.
