Peffer v Rigg [1977]

Facts

  • A property with registered title was purchased without good faith

Issue

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

Decision

  • Yes

Reasoning

  • 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]
