Roman v Byrne

Land – Interest in land. The Chancery Division dismissed the claimant's claim and allowed the defendant's counterclaim in part, in a dispute as to the removal of a restriction on the sale of land, following the lending of money to the claimant by the defendant. The court held that, on the evidence, the Form RX1, which had led to a restriction being registered at the Land Registry, was effective, but that the defendant had lent sums that were much lower than those alleged in the counterclaim.
