Redevco Properties Ltd v Mount Cook Land Ltd (2002)

Judgment Date: 30 Jul 2002

A tenant was not able to show at the summary judgment stage that the landlord had no real prospect of defending a claim that it had unreasonably withheld its consent to alterations. It was not appropriate to stay those proceedings pending the outcome of judicial review proceedings in respect of the planning permission granted for those proposed works.

Barings PLC (In Liquidation) & anor v Coopers & Lybrand (A Firm) & ors (2001)

Judgment Date: 09 Feb 2001

In an action arising out of the rogue activities of an investments trader, the court was prepared to accept, at least at this early interlocutory stage, that there was a body of expertise in the management of investment banks from which expert evidence could emerge capable of assisting a court considering claims in negligence arising from the management of such a bank.

Gillett v Holt & Anor

Judgment Date: 08 Mar 2000

An equivocal or revocable representation could give rise to a proprietary estoppel, since it was not the irrevocability of the representation when it was made which empowered equity to intervene, but the fact of subsequent detrimental reliance on the part of the representee, which made the representation irrevocable.

Mount Cook Land Ltd v Mark Hartley & Ors (2000)

Judgment Date: 11 Feb 2000

The judge had no doubt that despite the way in which the tenants had underlet the premises, it would have been wrong to have deprived the tenants of a valuable asset. Relief from forfeiture was granted on the condition that the tenants obtained consent on future underleases.
