Property “Hot Topic” Seminar: Sequent Nominees Ltd v Hautford Ltd

Tuesday 12 November 2019 (1.0 CPD)
8.30am - 9.30am

The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1PL

On Wednesday 30 October 2019 the Supreme Court handed down its much-awaited judgment in Hautfordreversing by a majority of 3 to 2 the unanimous decision of the Court of Appeal, and holding that a landlord reasonably withheld consent to its tenant applying to the local authority for permission to change the use of demised premises.  The Supreme Court has clarified the approach to interpretation of fully qualified leasehold covenants, and has for the first time considered the inter-relationship between a bespoke, individually-negotiated user covenant and a “boiler plate” covenant relating to planning with surprising results.

Tiffany Scott QC and Charlotte Black who acted for the Respondent tenant, will explain the background to the case and the reasoning of the Court, and consider what practical implications the decision may have for clients now and for other consent cases in future.
