Mexfield Housing Co-operative Ltd v Berrisford [2010] EWCA Civ 811; [2010] WLR (D) 192

“An occupancy agreement containing uncertain terms as to the period of occupation was not capable of creating an interest in land granting a lease of a property in favour of the occupier and was not enforceable in equity. The fact that a person took exclusive possession of the property and agreed to pay and paid rent monthly for the occupation, could create a monthly tenancy so as to bring the tenancy to an end by serving a notice to quit.”
