Tanfield Talks “Live Event” – The end of the Case D Notice to Quit?
12th May 2020
In this second talk of a series of remote presentations given by Tanfield practitioners, Rebecca Cattermole considers the effect of the decision in MoD v Spencer  EWHC 1526 (Ch) in which it was held that an agricultural tenant served with a notice to quit under the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 Sch.3 Case D could rely on equitable set-off of unliquidated claims for damages in order to invalidate it.
As well as looking at the practical consequences in recovering possession where rent is unpaid, the webinar will also explain why the High Court decision was wrong and how the issue is still ripe for challenge.
