The article outlines the disadvantages of the approach taken by schedule 15 of the Law of Property Act 1922 in converting perpetual leases into 2,000 year leases. It notes cases showing judicial reluctance to take such an approach where it could not have been the parties' intention, the extent to which the problem has been addressed by construction, the extent to which the Act's effect may be challenged on human rights grounds and possible reforms.
