Facts

  • The lessee of a sub-lease claimed that he was in actual occupation, when in fact, his step daughter had been living at the estate in question, rent free, at the time

Issue

  • Can an agent’s actual occupation constitute actual occupation of that agent’s principal?

Decision

  • No

Reasoning

  • If the stepdaughter had paid a nominal rent, the outcome would likely have been reversed
