RAINBOW ESTATES LIMITED – V – TOKENHOLD LIMITED [1999] Ch 64

PCB acted for a landlord of a property that was in disrepair. It had until then been generally accepted that a landlord’s remedies for breach of the tenant’s repairing covenant were forfeiture and/or damages, not specific performance. However, PCB was able to persuade the court that in exceptional cases (and this was one such case) specific performance could be ordered of a tenant’s repairing covenant.
