Sun Life Assurance Plc v Thales Tracs Ltd and Another: CA 10 May 2001

The landlord complained that the tenant, when he served his section 26 notice had had no intention of taking up a new lease.
Held: The landlord’s contention was true, but the Act did not require anything beyond the notice. The section 26 notice itself was valid, even though as the tenant intended he had acquired a further time within which to secure alternative premises.
