Oakrock Ltd v Travelodge Hotels Ltd and others

Contract – Breach. The claimant agreed to grant a lease of a hotel to the first defendant, Travelodge, on the understanding that Travelodge would carry out refurbishment work at the hotel. The Travelodge Group later entered into a company voluntary agreement (CVA), under which the rent for the hotel was reduced. The claimant brought proceedings against the defendants claiming, inter alia, that the work had not been fully or properly carried out and seeking damages for loss of rent following the making of the CVA. The first defendant sought summary judgment against the claimant. The Technology and Construction Court dismissed Travelodge's application for summary judgment on the whole claim, but held that claims which were excluded by the terms of the CVA would be struck out.
