One F., the owner of premises, executed a lease thereof to T. from year to year. A. took possession under T. as a tenant at will, and remained for more than the period of the statute of limitations. (Under the applicable statute the possession of a tenant at will becomes adverse after the first year.) F. then died and the land was sold by the executors to T. Upon T's death, plaintiff, his successor in interest, brought action to recover possession from the widow of A. who had recently died. The defendant claimed that since she was entitled to notice to quit as a tenant from year to year, which notice had not been given, the action should be dismissed. Held, plaintiff was entitled to possession without having given such notice. Taylor v. Twinberrow, [1930] 2 K. B. 16.
