Toms v Ruberry

Landlord and tenant – Forfeiture of lease. A notice under the Law of Property Act 1925 s 146, which allowed a landlord to re-enter premises due to a tenant's breach of covenants in a lease, should not be served before the relevant right to re-enter had occurred. So ruled the Queen's Bench Division in dismissing the appellant landlord's appeal against a judge's decision dismissing his claim for possession of a public house leased to the respondent tenant.
