The Landlord and Tenant (War Damage) Acts 1939 and 19411 (which are not expressed to be temporary legislation2) provide that by means of notices and counter-notices a lease of land which is affected by war damage3 may be disclaimed or retained on altered terms4.
The Acts bind the Crown5, and their provisions have effect in relation to any war damage notwithstanding any contract to the contrary made before that damage occurred6.
Special provisions apply to agricultural and mining leases7, ground leases8, multiple leases
