They'll have to wait

In a sudden rush we have:

Court of Appeal:

Greenwood Reversions Ltd. v World Environment Foundation Ltd. – and – Madhav Mehra [2008] EWCA Civ 47 on forfeiture of lease.

House of Lords:

Majorstake Limited (Respondents) v Curtis (Appellant) [2008] UKHL 10 on definition of premises in the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993.

And one I missed….

Boss Holdings Ltd v Grosvenor West End Properties and Another  [2008] UKHL 5 on the metaphysical question when a house is a house and when it isn’t.

Detailed notes to follow, but frankly, I’m too busy and too tired to do notes tonight. Meh. I’m sure you can wait 24 hours or so. Tomorrow, maybe the day after. But then Aweys v Birmingham has a Court of Appeal judgment due any day (what the hell were Birmingham appealing?) which I’ll need to do in depth…

Let’s just say that at some point over the next 1 to 4 days, there will be some commentary on these cases and, maybe, Aweys in the Court of Appeal, up on the blog.
