  • The mortgagee brewery took possession of the brewery under the mortgage agreement and, pending sale, leased it to a third party
  • This temporary lease was conditional upon the lessee purchasing alcohol from the lessor and mortgagee brewery, which reduced its rental value


  • To the extent that the brewery were to account for income received during possession, did the brewery buy xanax pakistan also need to account for the reduction in rental value due to the restriction?


  • Yes


  • A mortgagee, during possession, is obliged to account to a mortgagor for the income that could have been received, not jus the income which was received
  • As the brewery could have received much more income by removing their restriction, they were obliged to account for rent as if there was no restriction
