Albany Home Loans Ltd v Massey: CA 1997

It is generally not appropriate to order possession against one of two mortgagors where the order would be of no benefit to the mortgagee, particularly where the joint mortgagors were husband and wife. An ordinary order for possession might be pointless if immediately it was complied with it, the joint mortgagor, who was allowed to remain in possession, simply granted the other joint mortgagor a licence to retake possession.
Although the Convention was not yet part of UK law, Schiemann felt able to use it as a clue to the problems faced here.
