Weekly tenancy: notice to quit

Lemon v Lardeur ([1946] K.B. 613, CA (Eng)) concerned a four weekly tenancy of a house. Notice to quit, signed by L’s husband (H), was served on T. The English Court of Appeal found that the notice was invalid for two reasons. First, L had not shown when the tenancy began and so it was not possible to say what date should appear in the notice to quit. Second, H only had a limited authority to act for L and so the notice had to state expressly that it was served on behalf of L.
