Tweedie v Souglides [2012] EWCA Civ 1548

DATE: 04 Dec 2012

The Court of Appeal holds that the term “successor in title” to a lessee of a flat in an option agreement and in section 9(1) of the Perpetuities and Accumulations Act 1964 cannot include a lessee of the same flat plus other land following a variation which amounted to a surrender and regrant.

David Holland QC acted for the successful appellants.
