Herkanaidu v Lambeth London Borough Council: ChD 28 Feb 2000

The existence of a local land charge was not a matter going to the title of the property, but was something to be dealt with properly and simply in the normal course of the conveyancing process, and so could not be used as founding the right of a vendor unwilling to remove the charge, to rescind the contract. In any event, in this case, the request by the vendor for further time to comply with the request operated to remove any right to rescission.
