Hunt v Luck [1902]

A tenant’s occupation is notice of all that tenant’s
rights, but not of his lessor’s title or rights.
Vaughan Williams LJ elaborated further –
If purchaser or mortgagee has notice that vendor or
mortgagor is not in possession of property, he must make inquiries of person in
possession and find out from them what their rights are.
If he doesn’t, whatever title he acquires as purchaser
or mortgagee will be subject to title or right of the tenant in possession.
