Question: Problem question: Nuisance
Luke obtained planning permission to build a petrol station and garage on a plot of land he owned. He also had on display an exhibition of cars from the 1950s. Mary bought the garden centre next door. She often sprayed part of the garden with an insecticide, and the wind sometimes carried this over to Luke’s garage. The insecticide is harmless to the paintwork of modern cars, but has a gradually corrosive effect on the paintwork used in the 1950s.

This was not widely known and was unknown to Mary. Angered by the effect on his car, Luke allowed his car wash to operate all night, disturbing Mary’s sleep and upsetting her pet dogs. Oil from a tank in Luke’s garage seeped into the soil. Luke had not known when he bought the land that there was a channel running under his garage, which carried the oil into Mary’s garden centre and killed a number of her valuable plants.

Advise Luke and Mary.

Answer: In this question we need to discuss a detailed analysis on law relating to Nuisance and the law of Rylands v Fletcher....

Question: Problem question: Psychiatric harm
Jessica is a patient at the Brightnew Hospital. As she is not responding to conventional treatment for her condition, her consultant, Karen, suggests that they try a new drug. Karen knows that there is some possibility from early trials that this can lead to depression, but decides not to warn her of this. Jessica agrees to the treatment.

She appears to be responding well physically but, a week after the treatment started, she left the ward unobserved, climbed to the roof of the building and jumped to the ground. She suffered serious injuries and was taken to the emergency ward. Her mother Loraine was summoned but, when she arrived two hours later, she was told that Jessica had just died.

Question: Property Law Assignment

Problem Question: A few years ago Elijah, Mitchell, Anisah, Dirk and Shabaz bought a country cottage together to use as a Bed & Breakfast. Shabaz was going to move in, with her boyfriend Julius, and run the business, whilst it was an investment for the others. Elijah contributed 20% of the purchase price, Mitchell 20%, Anisah 25%, Dirk 25% and Shabaz 10%. They were registered as joint tenants and declared that they held title in trust for themselves as joint tenants.

Last year Elijah was posted abroad and sold his beneficial interest in the cottage to Mitchell.
In January Mitchell told Shabaz and Dirk that he wanted to move away too, and offered to sell his interest in the cottage to them. Shabaz replied that she and Julius “would immediately start saving so that they can take him up on his offer”.

In February Dirk decided to begin a new life in Australia and wrote to the Mitchell, Anisah and Shabaz saying he has decided to leave the rat race and wanted to get his money as soon as possible. He wanted them to send his money on as soon as they could. He sent the letters by registered post. The postman met Shabaz whilst walking to the cottage and gave her the letters. She put them in her bag but then forgot to open them. Sadly Dirk was killed on his way to the airport and he left all his property to Anisah.

(a) Advise parties as to their interests in the cottage.

(b) If the cottage was sold now, how would the proceeds of sale be divided?

(c) How, if at all, would your advice differ in EACH of the following ALTERNATIVE circumstances:
(i) The property was conveyed into their joint names but no reference to any trust was made in the conveyance;
(ii) Mitchell was adjudged bankrupt.

NB The word limit is strict. Declare your word count on the front sheet of your answer, including footnotes but not bibliography.
