Mungalsingh v Juman

Specific performance – Sale of land. The Privy Council dismissed the appellant's appeal against a decision of the Court of Appeal of Trinidad and Tobago, upholding an order for specific performance of an agreement for sale of a property. The Court of Appeal had correctly concluded that the judge had reached a decision which had been correct in law and which should, therefore, be upheld. In the circumstances, it had not been open to the appellant to serve notice to complete, making time of the essence, as he had purported to do, as he had not shown good title by that date.
