property for 4 hours on Saturday for cleaning proves that they did not have exclusive occupancy. However, the courts will look at this realistically whether this was done on a weekly basis or else would declare as a sham license as was the case in Aslan v Murphy 6 . Our case also satisfies the requirement s205 (1) LPA 7 as there was a monthly rent of 600 pounds. Furthermore, the Agreement also has a definite beginning of September 2016 and an ending which was 5 years after the agreement. Formalities LP(M)A 1989 s1 8 instructs that all legal leases need to be written in deed. In our case, the agreement was not in deed. On the other hand, an equitable lease can be established. It requires a contract that satisfies all the criteria in LPMA 1989 s2 9 . Assuming in our case that the agreement between the two parties was written down in the form of a contract and that there was a mutual understanding and recognition ideally signatures on that contract, it does comply with s2. Priorities/Registration Special priority rule under LRA 2002, s29 ss2 10 states that the purchaser of the property will ignore all interests except one on the register and overriding. According to LRA 2002 s27(2) (b)(i) 11 , a lease needs to be registered if it’s more than 7 years. This would not apply to our case. For Amirah and John to continue living in the property, we would have to establish 6 Aslan v Murphy [1990] 1 WLR 766 7 Ibid-no. 1 8 Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1989 9 Ibid 10 Land Registration Act 2002 11 ibid 3

ID :1756172 Word Count: 1245 overriding interest which is covered in sch 3 para 2 of LRA 2002 12 . The provision implies three main elements to be fulfilled for overriding interest to be effective. Proprietary interest The fact that Amirah and John have an equitable lease in the property means that they have an interest in the property. In the case of National Provincial 13 , it was established that a proprietary interest was necessary to form an overriding interest.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
