Abstract

This editorial discusses whether the rule imposed by Section 54(2) of the Law of Property Act 1925 as part of the "short lease exception" to using deeds to create valid legal leases, that the lease take effect in possession by the tenant, is an historical anomaly. It reviews the reasons for the original rule, the additional complexities of Section 54(2) and the benefits of creating a simplified version in keeping with the current registration requirements for reversionary leases under the Land Registration Act 2002.
