Salvesen v Riddell and Another: SCS 15 Mar 2012

Second Division – The court allowed an appeal under section 88(1) of the 2003 Act from a decision of the Scottish Land Court. The section was incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights. The Court proceeded on the basis that section 72 was enacted as an anti-avoidance measure. But on that basis that it was inappropriate because of its excessive effect and its arbitrary scope. The Lord Justice Clerk said that it was excessive because, if the landlord should fail to obtain an order of the Land Court under section 72(9), the general partner is given a 1991 Act tenancy of the holding, with all the adverse consequences to the landlord that this involves, and the landlord is also exposed to the tenant’s contingent right to buy.
