Practitioners should bear in mind the High Court decision in Good Harvest Partnership LLP v Centaur Services Limited [23 February 2010] in relation to the following sections of the certificate of title- paragraph 8.4 of Schedule 4 and the box in Part 8A of Schedule 5 which states "Name of every unreleased former tenant who has entered into an authorised guarantee agreement and of every unreleased former guarantor who has entered into a guarantee of that authorised guarantee agreement." However, the Land Law Committee has decided not to suggest a standard qualification to take account of the Good Harvest decision. The provider of the certificate should qualify those sections (as with any other qualification to the certificate) when considered appropriate in the context of the particular transaction, property and documentation.
