Hughes v Metropolitan Railway (1876-77) LR 2 App Cas 439


Terms of lease, demand repairs of tenant w 6 months notice. Negotiations began between landlord and tenant for landlord to buy tenants interest. Negotiations broke down. Landlord expired the lease bc 6 month period passed


If parties enter into a negotiation, which has the effect of leading one party to suppose that the strict rights arising under the contract will not be enforced, or will be kept in suspense, the person who otherwise might have been able to enforce those rights will no longer be allowed to enforce them


The obligation to repair by a certain date was void, but not the obligation to repair. It suspended the obligation of the tenant; it didn’t get rid of it.
