Gilpin and others v Legg

Landlord and tenant – Validity of notice to quit. The claimants' claim, in a claim concerning their right to station beach huts on the defendant's land, was dismissed. The Chancery Division held that while the first of two notices to quit given by the defendant had not given the claimants enough time, the second notice to quit had determined the periodic tenancies and none of the claimants was entitled to raise a proprietary estoppel against the defendant. It followed that the claimants no longer had any right to station their huts on the defendant's land.
