Two leases were given in similar terms to similarly named companies. An officer of one company by mistake gave notice to break the leases for each company but using the same name, and also when he was not a director of one of the companies. The notices were effective. The test was not what the landlord actually thought, but what objectively would be thought by a third party. A third party would have seen the mistake.
