Denial of landlord's title: a feudal relic?
Pawlowski, Mark (2012) Denial of landlord's title: a feudal relic? Landlord & Tenant Review, 16 (4). pp. 143-147. ISSN 1365-8018Full text not available from this repository.
Discusses whether the doctrine under which a tenant a tenant is deemed to have forfeited his lease if he denies his landlord's title to the demised premises, entitling the landlord to re-enter the property without recourse to his right of re-entry under the forfeiture clause in the lease, should be abandoned by reason of amounting to a feudal relic. Considers the the two forms a denial of title can take: (1) denial by matter of record, where the denial is made in the course of court proceedings; and (2) denial by act in pais, where the tenant seeks to establish a title for himself or a third part adverse to that of the landlord. Considers whether the Law of Property Act 1925 s.146 applies.
