I am doing some research for a member on a case where the service of the notice is in question which is requiring the reading of many transcripts. I found a little comment rather amusing that I thought worthy of sharing (emphasis added by me) …

“… Even if in the absence of authority I might have come to a different decision, I do not particularly regret the result in the case of this tenant, who, as is the way with the modern tenant, has expressed his intention not to go out until he is ejected.”

I am often told how modern tenants nowadays always wait for court orders and how things were different in the past. So, when was this transcript? …. 85 years ago in 1925! [SCRUTTON L.J: P Phipps & Co Ltd v Rogers [1925] 1 K.B. 14]

Things maybe don’t change as much as you might think!

I was mildly amused anyway.
