Grindal and Another v Hooper and Others: ChD 17 Dec 1999

A conveyance to joint tenants required any severance of the joint tenancy, to be recorded by endorsing the notice of severance on the transfer. The joint tenancy was purported to be severed, but no notice was endorsed. The failure to endorse the notice could not defeat the validity of the severance. The purpose of the clause was to assist any purchaser in obtaining good title, and was not intended to limit the effect of any severance as between the tenants.
