Lejonvarn and another v Cromwell Mansions Management Co Ltd [2011] EWHC 3838 (Ch)

DATE: 24 Nov 2011

High Court finds that lessee is not entitled to excavate under his flat as the sub-soil is not included within his demise. The presumption that ownership of land normally carries with it the ownership of the soil beneath could not apply given the terms of the lease.

David Holland QC acted for the freeholder.
