Mint v Good: CA 1951

The plaintiff was injured by the collapse of a wall which separated the highway from the forecourt of a house owned by the defendant. The house was let on a weekly tenancy. No right to enter was expressly reserved to the owner. The judge found that the wall was a nuisance, but dismissed the claim against the owner because he had not specifically reserved the right to enter the premises.
Held: Appeal allowed. A right to enter was to be implied in the circumstances, and the landlord could have made the necessary repairs.
