Williams and Glyn’s Bank Ltd v Boland: CA 1979

Money was raised on mortgage of registered land and paid to a single trustee holding the land on trust for sale, and it was held that the rights of beneficiaries who were in occupation and of whom no enquiries had been made were not mere minor interests but overriding interests within s.70(1)(g) and so binding on the mortgagee.
Ormrod LJ said that a person may be in occupation through another.
