Evening Post 29 August 1899
Mr. Justice Edwards gave judgment today in the case Taare Waitara v. McGovern, hotelkeeper, in which the plaintiff sought to set aside a lease of ground on which the Taita Hotel stands, and held by the defendant, on the ground that it was in contravention of the terms of the grant from the Crown. His Honour said the land was held under two grants, both issued under the provisions of the Land Transfer Act, the definition clause in each grant being to hold unto the grantee, his heirs, and assigns, for ever, provided always that the land shall be inalienable by sale or by lease for a longer period than 21 years, or by mortgage except with the consent of the Governor first obtained." His Honour said the question for the Court to decide "was whether the alienation effected by the lease was or was not an attempt to create a term to commence at a future date, and therefore in contravention of the terms of the Crown grant. His Honour was of opinion that the lease was not in contravention of the terms of the Crown grant. Further, it was clear that a contract even by a tenant for life, with a limited power of leasing, to grant a lease at a future day was valid, and was binding upon the remainderman. The lease had been properly registered, and the defendant was therefore entitled to the protection given by the Land Transfer Acts. Judgment was accordingly given for the defendant with costs according to scale. Mr. Brown was for the plaintiff and Mr. Treadwell for the defendant.
