Peffer v Rigg [1977]


  • A property with registered title was purchased without good faith


  • Could an unregistered interest override the purchaser’s interest?


  • Yes


  • A lack of good faith may override registration
  • This case is now to be treated as overruled
  • The Law Commission assumed in 2001 that the case had been overruled, and it was severely criticised in Chaudhary v Yavuz [2011]
