Weekly review: 13th – 16th May

Adverse possession

Whether or not acts of possession done on parts of an area would establish title to the whole area is a matter of degree (Lee Theatre Realty Ltd v Tong Wah Jor,  Cheung JA)

Periodic tenancy: notice to quit

Each party must have the right to bring the tenancy to an end at an ascertainable time (Doe d Warner v BrowneCentaploy Ltd v Matlodge Ltd)

Where the agreement allows a periodic tenancy to be brought to an end ‘at any time’,  this may (depending on the overall process of contractual construction) be taken as an indication that the notice need not expire at the end of a period (Lai Mai-yu v The Attorney-General)
