This case was decided in the House of Lords together with AG Securities v Vaughan , whose facts were different
- An experienced landlord allowed a man and his girlfriend to occupy four rooms in his property – the top floor flat, via two separate licence agreements
- There were separate beds within the flat, but the landlod knew that they were to live together as husband and wife as he supplied a double bed at their request
- Was the presence of separate licence agreements an attempt to circumvent landlord and tenant legislation by avoiding the creation of a lease?
- A lease was created as all 3 parties intended that exclusive possession should be given to the couple
