BETWEEN


MARY CADEAU

AND
EVELYN BLANC


Appellant


Respondent
Before Mr. Justice Date.
F. 0. C. Harris for Appellant.
C. A. H. Dupig ny for Respondent.
The 5th day of March, 1951.
DATE, J.: On 15th September, 1950, the Magistrate of District "E"
heard an application by the appellant for an order for possession of a certain
house lot. The evidence adduced by the appellant in support of the applica-
tion was to the effect that some years ago she rented the lot to the res-
pondent's father. The father died and, on his death, the respondent's
sister, Muriel Blanc, agreed to continue the tenancy at the yearly rental of
28/-. A receipt book produced in evidence indicates that the rent was
payable on the 23rd of September in each year, but it is not clear whether
the rent was payable in advance or otherwise. The book shews that the last
payment was made on 31st October, 1949, "for land rent due the 23rd
September 1949". This was paid by Muriel. In the circumstances it is
reasonable to assume that the next payment did not become due until 2.rd
September, 1950.
There is a chattel house on the land, but no evidence was given as to its
ownership. All we know is that Muriel and the respondent were living in
it when the tenancy of the land was transferred to Muriel.
At some unknown date, subsequent to the transfer of the tenancy to
Muriel, Muriel went to Curacao, leaving the respondent in possession of
both house and land. There is nothing to shew whether she went before
or after paying the rent on 31st. October, 1949. On 19th .'day, 1950, a
notice to quit was served by the appellant on the respondent, the person then
in possession.
At the close of the plaintiff's (appellant's) case in the Magistrate's
Court, Counsel for the defendant (respondent) elected to call no witnesses
and submitted that there was no case to answer He admitted that when
:the notice to quit was served on the defendant she was the tenant in posses.
sion, but contended that she was only a tenant-at-will (sub-tenant) of Muriel







OFFICIAL GAZETTE, TUESDAY, MARCH 27. 1951.

Blanc and that the plaintiff's notice to quit should have been served on
Muriel. This submission was upheld. by the learned Magistrate, whose
judgment reads as follows: "The tenancy expires on the 23rd September in
any year. Rent was paid by Muriel Blanc who is now out of the Colony,
for the year ending 23rd September, 1950 Defendant is in possession as a
tenant-at-will of her sister and is served with notice by plaintiff to deliver
possession of the plot and consequently the removalof the house is involved.
The tenant Muriel Blanc is not served with notice and hence there is still a
subsisting tenancy between plaintiff and Muriei Blanc. In the circumstances
the Court is of opinion that it could not make an order for possession in
favour of plaintiff no notice having been served on the tenant, and the effect
of which would be to compel defendant to remove a building which is not
proved to be defendant's".
It seems to me that the learned M igistrate's judgment contains two
statements of fact which are not really supported by evidence: (1) that rent
was paid by Muriel Blanc for the year ending 23rd September, 1950; (2)
that the defendant was in possession as Sub-tenant of her sister.
As I have recorded above, the receipt book shews that rent "due the
23rd September, 19-19", was paid on 31st October, 1949, but there is nothing
to indicate whether that rent was paid in respect of the immediately preced_
ing or the immediately succeeding period of twelve months.
As regards the second statement of fact in the Magistrate's judgment
which, in my opinion, is not supported by evidence, Counsel for the res-
pondent invites me to find that his assertion from the Bar in the Magistrate's
Court that h:s. client was a sub-tenant, though not admitted by Counsel on
the other side, is "as good as evidence"-whatever that may mean. He is,
however, unable to produce any authority for this proposition He also con-
tends that the mere fact that all rent due at the date of the service of the
notice had been paid by Muriel is evidence to shew that the lease had not
been assigned to the espondent. I am by no means certain that the pay-
ment of rent at any stage by Muriel an, in itself, be regarded as an act
inconsistent with the assignment of the lease by her; but, as I have already
mentioned, in this case there is nothing to shew that the rent was paid by
Muriel after the respondent took po session; and payment of rent prior to
the change of possession obviously cannot be treated as evidence negativing
an assignment. Even assuming that the rent was being paid in advance,
there would have been nothing to prevent Mur el from assigning the lease
to the respondent after she had paid rent on 31st October, 1949.
So far as I can see there is absolutely no evidence of anything done c 'n-
temporaneously with or subsequent to the change of possession which throws
any light on the nature of the new tenancy. What I have to consider, there-
fore, is whether, in tne absence of such evidence, the trial Magistrate was
right in holding that the respondent's possession was as sub-tenant and not
as assignee of Muriel Blanc. It is agreed that Muriel Blanc had power to
assign and that if she had assigned there would have been no obligation,
upon either her or the assignee, to give notice to the appellant It is also
agreed that if the respondent was in possession as assignee, the notice to
quit was valid: if as sub-tenant, it was invalid (Woodfall's Law of Landlord
and Tenant-24th edition--pp 840, 844, 966),
The answer to the question posed is, I think, to be found in Doe v. Mnr-
les., 18 R R. 3?5 (6 M. & S. 110). and Doe d. Morris v. Williai,,s, (18.6)
6 B. & C. 41; 30 R. R. 244. These two cases appear to establish beyond all
doubt that, in the absence of proof to the contrary, a person who has obtain-
ed possession from a tenant will be presumed to be in possession as assignee
and not as a mere sub tenant I must therefore hold that the learned
Magistrate erred in concluding that he had no power to make an order for
possession in favour of the appellant. The presence of a chat-el house of
unknown ownership on the land cannot affect the issue one way or the
other. If it belongs to the respondent, or if she is renting it, she will have
the right to remove it: if it is not removed by anyone within the delay
fixed by the Magistrate, the law will take its course.
It is hardly necessary for me to add that Counsel for the respondent,
having elected not to call any evidence, cannot now be permnitte I to do so.
He must stand on his submission. ( alexander v. Rayson, 19.36, 1 K B. 178.
This appeal is allowed, with costs 3. 14. 0, and the Magistrate's deci-
sion is set aside The case will be remitted to t,,e District Court with the
direction that the Magistrate make such order f r possession, and for costs
incurred in his Cour', as he deems fit according to law.
