Humber Oil Terminal Trustee v ABP [2011] EWHC 2043 (Ch)

DATE: 02 Aug 2011

The Chancery Division had to consider the correct meaning and application of the word "intends" in section 30 (1) (g) of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 in an unusual case involving the opposed renewal of four business leases of an oil jetty and terminal in Immingham. The court held that the landlord had the requisite intention within the act even though it intended to take over the tenant's operations and could not do so without the tenant's staff and cooperation.

David Holland QC acted for the landlord.
