John Smith & Co (Edinburgh) Ltd v Hill: temporary nuisance and injury to the reversion

By Mark Pawlowski

Abstract

Discusses the Chancery Division decision in John Smith & Co (Edinburgh) Ltd v Hill on the extent to which a landlord holding only a reversionary interest in a sub-lease can sue upon a temporary nuisance which affected the demised property.
