Villarosa v Ryan

Villarosa v Ryan: A notice given by personal representatives of the tenant to a registered leasehold flat, pursuant to the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 s.42, was not invalidated by s.42(4A) of that Act even though the notice was given more than two years after the date of the grant of probate. The executors were qualifying tenants who had owned the lease for more than two years and did not need to rely on the special provision in s.39(3A), which conferred an individual right to enfranchisement on the personal representatives of a deceased tenant.
