Cadogan v Panagopoulos and Another: ChD 15 Mar 2010

‘This case concerns the proper interpretation of certain provisions of that [1993 Act] regime when after a claim to collective enfranchisement has been made and registered, the freeholder grants a 999 year lease of a part of the premises. In a thorough and thoughtful judgment in the Central London County Court, HH Judge Marshall QC held that the lease granted by the freeholder in the circumstance of this case was caught by the anti-avoidance provisions in section 19[1] on several grounds. With leave granted by Peter Smith J, the freeholder appeals against that decision.’
