Another factor which the courts look at in determining this issue of accommodation, is whether the right [...] of the dominant tenement. Where it does, this may be used as evidence that the right accommodates that land, although remember that an effect on the value of the dominant tenement is not, by itself, conclusive as to this issue. It is rather a factor to be taken into account with all other relevant factors.

If the parties have tried to create a legal lease but have failed because they have not complied with the formal requirements for a legal lease (including registration in respect of leases over seven years), equity will only step in and recognise an equitable lease where there exists a document which constitutes a valid contract to create a lease (see below, para 3.7). Note that this equitable lease construction could also assist a short lease (i.e. not exceeding three years) which was not legal because it was neither created by deed nor took effect as an informal short legal lease due to failure to comply with the requirements of the [ statute ]

Question
As soon as the parties sign a valid specifically enforceable contract, the buyer acquires an ‘[...]’ giving the purchaser the right to require specific performance of the contract, as against the vendor and (if duly protected) any subsequent owner of the legal estate. However, as held recently by the Supreme Court, in Scott v Southern Pacific Mortgages Ltd [2014] UKSC 52, the specifically enforceable contract to grant an estate does not give the intended purchaser a proprietary right in the estate (that would allow him to grant rights to third parties) but only an equitable right to require specific performance of the contract (a point we return to at para 3.8). This equitable right can be protected against third parties. The method of doing this varies depending upon whether it has been created over registered or unregistered land.

Question
In [ case ], the landowner, an elderly lady, persuaded her younger brother and his wife to live with her when they returned to England from Australia. They spent over £700 (then a considerable sum of money) on improvements to the property, on the basis that the landowner encouraged them to believe that the survivor of them would be able to live in the property for life. The court did not give effect to this expectation, as the landowner wanted to sell the property and buy a smaller, cheaper one for herself. She had no other assets, so would not be able to do this if the claimants were awarded a right to reside for life. The court granted them a licence to occupy the property until their expenditure had been repaid. In effect, this was a money award rather than an award of a proprietary right in the land.

In [ case ], the Court of Appeal used this wide discretion when the claimant argued for an award based on his expectation. The respondents argued that ‘expectation’ should only be the starting point for an award. In response to these arguments the Court of Appeal steered a middle course:

“In such a case the court's natural response is to fulfil the claimant's expectations. But if the claimant's expectations are uncertain, or extravagant, or out of all proportion to the detriment which the claimant has suffered the court can and should recognise that the claimant's equity should be satisfied in another (and generally more limited) way.” Walker LJ (para.50)

This has broadly been followed, but a notable exception is Crabb v Arun DC (see para 7.2 where the claimant’s expectation was an easement, subject to making a payment for it. The court actually granted an easement without any payment, as the court took account of the council’s delay and high-handed manner towards the claimant. In that case, the court stated that the basis of an award should be ‘the minimum equity to do justice’ (Crabb v Arun DC [1976] Ch 179, at 198 per Scarman LJ).

Question
In [ case ] (see para 7.2.1.3 above, and your casebook), Lord Walker discussed whether unconscionability is a separate element of establishing an estoppel. He rejected ‘unconscionable’ as describing a state of mind and said:

Here it is being used (as in my opinion it should always be used) as an objective value judgment on behaviour (regardless of the state of mind of the individual in question). As such it does in my opinion play a very important part in the doctrine of equitable estoppel, in unifying and confirming, as it were, the other elements. If the other elements appear to be present but the result does not shock the conscience of the court, the analysis needs to be looked at again. In this case Mrs Lisle-Mainwaring's conduct was unattractive. She chose to stand on her rights rather than respecting her non-binding assurances, while Mr Cobbe continued to spend time and effort, between Christmas 2003 and March 2004, in obtaining planning permission. But Mr Cobbe knew that she was bound in honour only, and so in the eyes of equity her conduct, although unattractive, was not unconscionable.

There is a potential conflict between the common law rules and those of equity as they cannot hold both a legal tenancy and an equitable tenancy simultaneously of the same demise. At common law, there is potentially a periodic tenancy, whereas in equity a lease will have been deemed granted for the full term. The conflict is resolved by following the decision in [ case ] which decided that in such situations the equitable lease would prevail and that no periodic tenancy would co-exist alongside it.

Question
Unlike a legal lease, a properly created equitable lease is not automatically binding on a new freehold owner. An equitable tenant should protect their interest under the Land Registration Act 2002, by entering a notice on the charges register of the substantively registered freehold title by virtue of the [ statute ]. However, by virtue of the LRA 2002, Sch 1 para 2 (for first registration of unregistered land) and LRA 2002, Sch 3 para 2 (for land where the superior title is already registered), any equitable lease coupled with discoverable occupation overrides the register. Such leases are another example of an ‘unregistered interest which overrides registered dispositions’ and will therefore bind a new estate owner. This will be explained in more detail in Chapter 5 of these study notes. Where the freehold land is unregistered then the equitable tenant should protect their interest by registering a C(iv) land charge at the Land Charges Registry (Land Charges Act 1972, s 2(4)(iv)).

  1. A transfer of a legal lease is called an assignment. It must be:
    1. Completed by deed, regardless of the duration of the lease itself or how long there is still to run: [statute], Crago v Julian [1992] 1 All ER 744. The transfer document must comply with s 1 LP(MP)A 1989;

    3. If the lease has not already been registered, but has more than seven years to run at the date of the assignment (which may arise if it was created before the enactment of the LRA 2002) then the assignment gives rise to compulsory first registration of the leasehold estate (LRA 2002, s 4(1)(a) and s 4(2)(b)).
  2. A contract to transfer a legal lease must comply with LP(MP)A 1989, s 2. Remember the transferee, at the contract stage, holds an equitable lease (provided specific performance is available on the valid contract as per Walsh v Lonsdale (1882) 21 Ch D 9, see para 3.8 below).

Frequently these are the same: an occupier will be asked to pay £500 per month and will actually pay monthly. But if the tenant agrees to pay £10,000 a year by four quarterly payments, the tenancy is a yearly tenancy not a quarterly tenancy, because the rent is calculated annually.

Question
In the case of [ case ], it was held that the typing or printing of a name does not constitute a signature. In this case, the purchaser prepared a contract for the seller to sign, which detailed the names of the parties and also identified the land to be sold ‘on the enclosed plan’. The seller signed the plan but not the contract document, and the purchaser signed both. The Court of Appeal held that the requirements of LP(MP)A 1989, s 2 had not been complied with, as it viewed the plan as being separate from the contract; the contract was the document which incorporated the plan, not vice versa. The purchaser could also not rely on the fact that the parties’ names were printed on the contract to constitute a ‘signature’ for the purposes of the Act.

Question
In [ case ], the claimant, Mrs Williams, was the landowner’s daughter. She had lived with her mother for most of her life, and spent her own money on repairs and improvements in the belief that she would be able to live in the property for the rest of her life. When the mother died, she left the property in her will to Mrs Griffiths. The court said that the claimant’s payment of basic outgoings did not give rise to any estoppel, as it could be said that the payments were made in return for being able to live in the property.

Question
In [ case ], the claimant was a lady who lived with a man for a number of years in his house. He made various assurances over the years that the house and contents were hers, but never took any formal steps to transfer them. When their relationship broke down, he moved out. The claimant spent a considerable proportion of her savings over the years improving the property. When the man sought an order for possession, the claimant claimed the fee simple by estoppel. She had expected the fee simple by gift, and that was what she was awarded. Her detrimental reliance was great, when assessed against the total amount of her life savings. She had spent 25 per cent of all that she had on the improvements, although objectively, that amounted to relatively little money.

Question
In [ case ], the claimant had an affair. She became pregnant, left her husband and moved into a house owned by her lover, although they did not live together. She did not work after the baby was born, but did some improvements and repairs to the house over the years. After 10 years the relationship ended, and the claimant claimed the fee simple. The court held that although the claimant had suffered a detriment, in that she had given up her home, this was not done in reliance on any assurance as to property rights made by her lover. The court held that her actions were the normal actions of someone who is unhappily married. She had given up her home with her husband because she wanted to live with her lover, not in any expectation of property rights, and this could not be used in an estoppel claim.

For example, in [ case ], the claimant was allowed into occupation of premises while the terms of the contract were being negotiated. The licence and the negotiations were explicitly made ‘subject to contract’, which effectively meant that they could be revoked at any time. The claimant suffered significant detriment but nonetheless failed in an estoppel claim. The court made it clear that reliance on incomplete negotiations, by itself, will not give rise to an estoppel claim.

Question
The claimant must have suffered detriment in reliance on the assurance, but it is often very difficult to prove reliance and the courts are normally prepared to infer it in situations where that provides a plausible explanation of what has occurred. In fact it is probably the case that once the assurance and the detriment have been proved, a presumption of reliance arises and the burden of proving otherwise is placed on the shoulders of the defendant. (See, for example, the approach of the Court of Appeal in [ case ])

It is not possible to be absolutely precise as to when the doctrine will operate, simply because it is based on the fundamental premise that equity will step in to prevent unconscionable conduct. Robert Walker LJ said, in [ case ], at 225:

Question
This right of survivorship means that when one joint tenant dies, his interest dies with him. It does not pass under his will or intestacy. This is because the right of survivorship operates immediately on death, whereas a will is operative after death, so survivorship takes effect first (In [ case ]).

This is because under a tenancy in common, each co-owner is regarded as having a distinct ‘undivided share in the land’.

Question
See also the more recent case of [ case ] which concerned a couple, Mr Pilkington and Mrs Masterson, who had lived together in a house which they held as joint tenants. Following the breakdown of the relationship, Mr Pilkington instructed his solicitors to sever the joint tenancy by serving written notice upon Mrs Masterson. Unfortunately, they failed to serve the notice properly. Mr Pilkington’s health deteriorated and Court of Protection proceedings followed in which their daughter, Mrs Quigley, applied to be appointed as Mr Pilkington’s deputy. Mr Pilkington then died.
The High Court rejected an argument by Mrs Quigley that the joint tenancy had been severed by mutual conduct (see below for details regarding what is meant by severance by mutual conduct). However the court held that Mrs Masterson’s application in the Court of Protection proceedings made during Mr Pilkington’s lifetime was sufficient to qualify as written notice under LPA 1925, s 36(2). Mrs Masterson’s application made it clear she treated Mr Pilkington’s share as 50 per cent, and that she wished to obtain a valuation for the house and to market it for sale, in order that the sale proceeds could be divided between her and Mr Pilkington. The joint tenancy had therefore been severed.

Mrs Masterson’s application made it clear she treated Mr Pilkington’s share as 50 per cent, and that she wished to obtain a valuation for the house and to market it for sale, in order that the sale proceeds could be divided between her and Mr Pilkington. The joint tenancy had therefore been severed.

Question
The classic authority on what ‘acts or things’ bring about severance in equity was provided by Page-Wood VC in [ case ]: A joint tenancy may be severed in three ways: in the first place, an act of any one of the persons interested operating upon his own share may create a severance as to that share. Each one is at liberty to dispose of his own interest in such manner as to sever it from the joint fund losing, of course, at the same time, his own right of survivorship. Secondly, a joint tenancy may be severed by mutual agreement. And, in the third place, there may be a severance by any course of dealing sufficient to intimate that the interests of all were mutually treated as constituting a tenancy in common. (at p 557)

Question
In [ case ], the Court of Appeal was required to consider whether severance had occurred during the course of numerous correspondence exchanged between the parties’ solicitors (who had been instructed once the couple’s marriage had broken down). Lord Neuberger accepted the view that a mere agreement to put a jointly owned property on the market, or indeed a subsequent joint acceptance of a ‘subject to contract’ offer on that property, could not, by itself, sever the joint tenancy. Such action alone would not be inconsistent with a joint tenancy continuing and applying to the sale proceeds. However, in this particular case the parties had gone further by, for example: indicating that when the house was sold, the sale proceeds would be divided; by both parties benefiting from seeking legal advice; by discussions between them which recognised that when various joint assets had been sold, the proceeds would be divided in a balanced way.

Question
Two cases illustrate how the courts have interpreted the parties’ conduct when considering the content of parties’ wills. In the case of Carr v Isard [2007] WTLR 409, a mother and father each executed a will. In her will, the mother directed that upon her death her husband should receive a life interest in her ‘share’. The husband’s will was slightly different; although he also gave a life interest to his wife on his death, this was an interest in the residue of the whole. Following their eventual deaths, the court, relying on Burgess v Rawnsley, held that the differences within the wills did not support the suggestion of a common intention to sever. In particular, the father’s proposed disposition was not dependent on there being a tenancy in common.

This case can be contrasted against [ case ]. This time a brother and sister each executed wills giving each other life interests in their share of the property on their deaths. In this case it was held that both wills contained clear instructions that life interests in a ‘share’ be given, which was inconsistent with a joint tenancy. This demonstrated an agreement to hold distinct shares and amounted to severance.

Question
Two cases illustrate how the courts have interpreted the parties’ conduct when considering the content of parties’ wills. In the case of Carr v Isard [2007] WTLR 409, a mother and father each executed a will. In her will, the mother directed that upon her death her husband should receive a life interest in her ‘share’. The husband’s will was slightly different; although he also gave a life interest to his wife on his death, this was an interest in the residue of the whole. Following their eventual deaths, the court, relying on Burgess v Rawnsley, held that the differences within the wills [...]. In particular, the father’s proposed disposition was not dependent on there being a tenancy in common.

This case can be contrasted against Re Woolnough (Deceased) [2002] WLTR 595. This time a brother and sister each executed wills giving each other life interests in their share of the property on their deaths. In this case it was held that both wills contained clear instructions that life interests in a ‘share’ be given, which was inconsistent with a joint tenancy. This demonstrated an agreement to hold distinct shares and amounted to severance.
Answer
did not support the suggestion of a common intention to sever

Question
If the beneficiaries are tenants in common in equity, but no restriction is entered on the proprietorship section of the register, a purchaser of the legal estate may be bound by their interests if he does not overreach them. By virtue of [ statute ], these interests override the register provided the elements of the paragraph are present. So were equitable tenants in common to be in actual occupation of the property then because of this and the fact that they have an interest in the land, here in the form of a beneficial interest behind a trust, the purchaser would be bound unless one of the exceptions in LRA 2002, Sch 3 para2 existed.
Answer
LRA 2002, Sch 3 para 2
