EMI Group Ltd v O & H Q1 Ltd

Landlord and tenant – Assignment of lease. The Chancery Division held that a tenant was precluded under the Landlord and Tenant (Covenants) Act 1995 from assigning the tenancy to its guarantor and any agreement which sought to give effect to such an arrangement was void by reason of s 25(1) of the Act, as it frustrated the purpose of the Act.
