Abstract

Examines the operation of the Law of Property s.54(2) exception, for certain short oral leases, to the rule that in order to create a valid legal lease a deed must be used. Argues that the requirements that the lease take effect in possession and that it be at the best rent reasonably obtainable should be repealed, using example scenarios to illustrate some of the points made. Identifies and comments on comparable legislation in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
