Property Law

Ladouceur v Vannier (CA 21/2019 ) [2020] SCSC 372 (03 July 2020);


Property law : Rent Board : Jurisdiction of the Rent Board on issue of droit de superficie : whether application to the Rent Board is res judicata : Plea in limine litis on the requirement of leave to appeal : Rent Board has no jurisdiction to determine land rights or ownership hence has no jurisdiction to determine whether the Appellant has a droit de superficie. The principle of res judicata does not arise : Rent Board did not err in placing emphasis on the letter of the Tenants Right Registrar.
