  • Dispute over the enforceability of rights of re-entry and the Land Charges Act 1925 (now the Land Charges Act 1972)

  • Yes


  • It would become a residuary equitable interest subject to the doctrine of notice
  • Claim failed due to previous breaches of covenant¬†(equitable remedies are discretionary)
