Link Lending Ltd v Hussain and another [2010] EWCA Civ 424; [2010] WLR (D) 103

“A person, who had been taken into psychiatric care under s3 of the Mental Health Act 1983 and had been involuntarily placed elsewhere, was still in actual occupation of her own home under the land registration legislation. Where therefore the owner, lacking legal capacity, had transferred the property to a swindler for no consideration and the swindler had secured a loan on the property from a lender which he had failed to repay, the lender as the registered chargee was not entitled to dispossess her on the ground that she was not in actual occupation of her home.”
