Angteeah v Bathfield and others (Mauritius)

Landlord and tenant – Lease. The appellant's appeal against a decision of the Mauritian Court of Appeal failed. The proceedings concerned a written agreement for the sale of leasehold land, in circumstances where it had been necessary to obtain permission from the lessor for the transfer of the leasehold rights from the vendor to the purchaser. The Privy Council held that, among other things, the Mauritian Court of Appeal had been entitled to re-examine the facts upon a correct application of the relevant law, and had been entitled to conclude, that the sale agreement had lapsed by the time that the proceedings had been commenced.
