April 5, 2017 Validity of a s.42 notice given to a transferee after the prescribed period for the registration of their title

Toby Bishop appeared for the successful landlord in Solomon –v- Dawn, a dispute about the effect of the LR 2002 on notices given under the LRHUDA 1993. The issues were: a) does s.7(3) LRA 2002 validate an ineffective s.42 LRHUDA 1993 notice, upon registration of the recipient as the landlord? and b) was there a general prohibition on the landlord relying on its failure to register in opposing new leases?
