Gateway Assets Ltd v CV Panels Ltd

Landlord and tenant – Lease – Option to terminate – Whether option validly exercised. Court of Session: In an action in which the landlord of commercial premises sought declarator that the defender as tenant under a lease of the premises had not validly exercised an option to terminate the lease, and the defender relied on a letter allegedly sent in April 2017, the court concluded that had the letter been sent and received it would have constituted sufficient notice for the purposes of cl 3.2 of the lease; however, in light of the court's findings that the letter was not sent, and even if it was sent it was not received, that conclusion was academic and the pursuer's case succeeded.
