On the Case: Forfeiture after Manchester Ship Canal

Matthew Bonye, head of real estate dispute resolution and Alice Dockar, partner in the transactional real estate team, both at Herbert Smith Freehills LLP, join EG's Jess Harrold in the studio to discuss the implications of the recent Supreme Court decision in Vauxhall Motors Ltd (formerly General Motors UK Ltd) v Manchester Ship Canal Co [2019] UKSC 46;
[2019] EGLR 51.

Bonye and Dockar address the law of forfeiture, how relief from forfeiture works and how the court's decision to allow relief in relation to a licence means the text books will have to be rewritten. In addition, they employ a case study to explain how the ruling might apply in a more conventional development scenario - as well as exploring potential other situations.
