Abstract

Discusses the Chancery Division decision in John Smith & Co (Edinburgh) Ltd v Hill on the extent to which a landlord holding only a reversionary interest in a sub-lease can sue upon a temporary nuisance which affected the demised property. Reviews the facts of the case, involving claims that the continued presence of scaffolding for almost a year hindered efforts to assign a sub-lease, the principles established in earlier jurisprudence, the court's grounds for finding a temporary interference actionable if the injury caused to the reversion was permanent and the significance of the ruling.
