King v David Allen

[1916] 2 AC 54

Case summary last updated at 09/01/2020 15:26 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case King v David Allen

 P was granted a license by D to advertise on his building for a set period and D agreed to do whatever was necessary to prevent anyone else advertising there. D then sold the building to X who refused to allow P to advertise. P sued D for breach of contract and HL awarded damages, holding that the agreement was merely a right in personam, NOT in rem, and therefore could only be enforced against D.
