Habib Bank AG Zurich v Utocroft 2 Ltd

Landlord and tenant – Lease. The Chancery Division held that the claimant bank was entitled to possession of a property as against the defendant company. There was no defence to the claim, because the lease had been granted without the bank's written consent contrary to the express terms of two charges by which the defendant had charged the property with the repayment of sums due to the bank.
