C&P Haulage v Middleton

[1983] 3 All ER 94

Case summary last updated at 04/01/2020 14:26 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case C&P Haulage v Middleton

 D rented offices from P for a period and in the contract it said that he could not remove any fixings that D added to P’s office even after the cotract expired. D made improvements before being kicked out illegally, which the courts dealt with. Later on he claimed damages for the fixings. CA dismissed his claim. Ackner LJ said it was not the place of the court to put P in a better position than he would have been in had the contract been fulfilled, as would happen if they made an award for the fixings.
