Reply To: legal -v- equitable tenancy.


Basically it allows for the tenancy to continue unbroken bar the succession since the trustees can possess a legal estate and protects her legal interest.

I have no major doubts about entitlement itself but…Does the rent fall due by virtue of her equitable interest to the LL or by virtue of the trustees legal interest?

If the latter is the case then her rental liability would be to the trust although she would be protected from the effects of Reg.9.

The question is directed more at how the claim should be treated than whether an entitlement exists.
