Panton and others v Brophy and another

Landlord and tenant – Lease. A local authority freeholder with which a rowing club had purportedly entered a lease agreement had an unanswerable case to be joined as a defendant. The Chancery Division further granted the claimant members of the rowing club an order appointing them as trustees of the lease as it had been the intention of all the parties that the club had been a tenant, although it had not legally been entitled to be such.
