Ryan v Villarosa

Landlord and tenant – Lease. Despite the poor drafting of the lease in question, it had created a coherent obligation upon the tenant to contribute 75% of the costs of the roof repairs. The Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber), in allowing the appeal, held that the correct interpretation of the lease between the appellant landlord and the respondent tenant was such that the roof of the building was included in the demise and the landlord was entitled to recover 75% of the costs of repairing the roof from the tenant.
