Following the introduction of the Land Registration Act 1925,there has been a significant discussions related to how this law applies in the contexts of the landlord-tenant relationship, particularly concerning its effect on the two main forms of contractual agreement that exists between these two parties.
In 2003, the Law Commission set out a proposal, the aim of
which was to “render the lease-licence distinction
irrelevant” within the context of the Land Registration
Act. It is this proposition that forms the foundation of
this essay. In particular, the aim of this study is to
examine the effects and implications of the proposed change
within the legal context.
