Property Disputes analysis: The court considered the effect of a disclaimer of a lease by the Crown when a company is subsequently restored to the Register of Companies. The court held that the disclaimed lease automatically revests in the company upon restoration. The court also held that if a claim is made for a vesting order (even in the alternative) within 14 days of notice of disclaimer being served, that is sufficient to avoid the disclaimer taking effect, whether or not a vesting order is made.
